The AEF group is organising Universities Meet Businesses (RUE) on the 20th and 21st March 2014 at the Palais des Congrès in Paris. This specialist exhibition brings together the main academic, economic and institutional players in order to discuss four key issues: training/employability, R&D/innovation, international and professional communities (virtual campuses and their attractiveness).
In 2013, AEF founded an R&D/Innovation village which focuses on the development of research and innovation platforms, in order to demonstrate the coming together of all players in the areas of the ecosystem and research. R&D representatives from the academic and private fields held discussions in the context of expert workshops, special events on the stands or in the context of informal occasions, such as the meeting over lunch of the scientific directors and the presidents of the SATTs.
Building upon the work of the RUE 2013, the new edition of the RUE should give rise to the following events in particular:
- The promotion of the «Entreprise Innovante des Pôles» (EIP) label;
- the organisation of pre-programmed appointments between innovative project owners and investment funds and businesses;
- the promotion of new European 2014-2020 programmes (Horizon 2020, structural funds and smart specialisation);
- the Doctors Entrepreneurs award;
- the launch of ‘France Université Numérique’;
- AEF awards for the best Universities-Businesses shared initiatives.
