How can building innovation ecosystems support a country’s economic growth?
What does the 3rd Mission of universities mean in practice and how to build up strong partnerships between academia and industry?

 These were just some of the questions that the KIUInnovate Business Forum, organized by our partner Kutaisi International University together with us TUM International, tackled last week.
To share our main take-aways:
➾ Universities are the key for a sustainable development of a country! (by President Emeritus of TUM, Prof. Dr. Wolfgang A. Herrmann)

➾ It’s all about the people!
