We are happy to announce that our registration count has surpassed 150, attracting an impressive list of academic innovators, spin-offs, policy makers, and investors from throughout the country. The diverse group of attendees is sure to make for an engaging and collaborative event.
Additionally, we are thrilled to announce that Prof. Dr. Erik Frijlink has been named the recipient of the 2023 Innovation Award. The award will be presented during the morning session by Hans Biemans, the Vice President of the Board of the University of Groningen.
