Introduction to NORA.startup & Members!

During the NORA.startup segment, all startup members are invited to present their startup - the idea that inspired the startup, the specific service/ product you offer, the team behind the startup and how research based innovation has played a part in your startup, and the benefits of research based collaboration. 

The NORA.startup segment will be divided into two sessions. The first segment will be startup stands. All the startups who have signed up for a presentation will be given a dedicated space in a function room to set up a stand. The stands will be open the entire second day of the conference. Our invited keynotes and researchers from partner universities will then be able to visit the stands and chat with the respective owners of the stand.
