NLSDays Fireside Chat with SPARK
The success of Stanford University´s SPARK Program has inspired universities across the globe to establish SPARK programs fostering and professionalizing academic innovation.
SPARK Finland, SPARK Norway and the newly established SPARK Denmark are part of the global SPARK family with a mission to translate state-of-the-art academic discoveries to new products and solutions.
The results from the Nordic SPARK programs so far have been impressive, with a common ambition to become even stronger together.
In this session the Directors of the Nordic SPARK Programs will discuss with academic innovators (called SPARKees), investors and mentors how academic discoveries can be advanced to a commercial setting more efficiently, how the university – industry bridge can be strengthened and how investors can engage to advance the growing portfolio of investment opportunities emerging from the Nordic SPARK initiative.
