Up to four facilitated group discussions are offered during WING Day in ‘one question, one hour’ workshops where teams of approximately five to ten individuals from industry and academia of different disciplines sit around a table to candidly discuss common research questions.
The group discussions have one objective – to match the needs of organizations for new knowledge with academic expertise. The idea is to bring different perspectives to each question. Group discussions are multidisciplinary and aimed at exploring possible solutions.
Companies register their challenges in a portal, where academic researchers and PhD students may sign up to be matched in a schedule for the day. The schedule will be published in the beginning of September.
The companies and researcher who aren’t matched in scheduled discussions may still meet in the mingle area at WING Day or register for presenting in the Speaker’s Corner. WASP will also provide a small number of un-booked group rooms for spontaneous discussions at a first come first served basis.
