On 17th of April, 2019, Podlaska Regional Development Foundation and Bialystok University of Technology organised a meeting in a form of a business breakfast – an early-morning networking event aimed at entrepreneurs, academia, administration and business organisations interested in international cooperation. 47 participants had an opportunity to learn more about the Transnational Innovation Brokerage System (TIBS) value proposition from Wiesław Urban, Project Lead Partner and representative of Bialystok University of Technology. Afterwards the audience was introduced to Anna Wrzesinska, Innovation Broker from Podlaska Regional Development Foundation. Presenters emphasised the importance of transnational cooperation in terms of both innovative businesses and technologies.
After the introduction to the GoSmart BSR project and TIBS, the participants had some less formal time for networking and exchange of views, opinions and business propositions. More than half of the SMEs’ representatives afterwards expressed their interest in taking advantage of the TIBS services.
