Collaborating for Success: Scaling Up Innovation Together?

Are you ready to be a part of the change-makers of the world? The need for new technologies and innovative solutions to tackle society's problems is greater than ever before, yet many don't know how to navigate the obstacles and leverage the mechanisms to successfully implement and scale innovations.

By joining forces with other like-minded individuals and organisations, we can turn our bold ideas into tangible progress that improves people's lives and drives economic growth without sacrificing our planet. Collaboration is the key to really make an impact to scale innovation on a global scale. Are you ready to learn what it takes to make this happen? 

The UAA Symposium 2023 on Scaling Up Innovation brings together leaders from various backgrounds including academics, entrepreneurs, corporates, and consultants to discuss the mechanisms of innovation and how to collaborate for success.

During this one-day event, you will have the opportunity to:
