CIP FORUM 2016 has come to an end and we would like to sincerely thank all participants for your intriguing input and active contribution to the discussions on convergence for industry and university. In particular, we give our warmest thanks to our partners for making the event possible. Together the participants have shared innovative ideas, research, and practical experiences from a global perspective, and it has been our delight to see them interact with our students, who have gained valuable insight into the current hot topics of our field. The goal of the event was to provide a comprehensive understanding of the key convergence issues by leading global policy makers, executives, and experts in an open environment where all participants have an opportunity to partake in the dialogue. That goal was truly reached.
We already now look forward to CIP FORUM 2018.
