Successful NRI Innovation Network meeting in Stockholm

27 Jan.2014

The NRI Innovation Network met in Stockholm for a two day meeting where the structure of the network and different themes were discussed.

The NRI Innovation group led by Jesper B Simonsen and Kirstine Rasmussen from Aalborg University Hospital arranged a combined steering group and working group meeting in the end of November 2013. The meetings were very productive and put forward several good suggestions regarding what focus areas the network will be working on. 


Show and Tell events

It was agreed that communication and knowledge sharing was important, and the network will host several Show and Tell events. The first Show and Tell event was held by Peter Söderman at Karolinska University Hospital the 15th of November 2013. His presentation focused on a national platform for multicenter clinical trials and innovative radiotherapy. The steering group concluded that the Show and Tell event was very successful and we wish to continue with this type of knowledge sharing. It will be possible to attend the Show and Tell events both physically and via video conference. Information about future Show and Tell events will be posted at this web page and at the NRI Innovation LinkedIn group

The next Show and Tell event will be hosted at Bergen Technology Transfer Office 10:00 - 11:00 on the 6th of February 2014. More information about this event will soon be released!
