UPM Innovation Open Day (UPMIOD) standing on its tagline “Prospering through Innovation” is a promotional commercialisation event showcasing technologies and expertise of each faculty and institute of UPM. The objective of Innovation Open Day is to encourage one-on-one meetings and collaboration opportunities with interested companies. Besides that, the open day is an initiative of the university to enhance collaboration effort between faculty/institute and companies.
Attendees will be able to listen to brief presentations of innovations and expertise subsequently discuss available ways to support collaboration to stimulate commercialisation benefitting the society. In short, Innovation Open Day is designed for companies who want to remain that competitive edge through expert consultation, R&D and licensing of UPM technologies.
The Innovation Open Day will take place at the Faculty of Forestry, UPM at 10.00a.m. A book sale by UPM Press pertaining to forestry and environment issues will be held concurrently on the same day.
