The QBN meetings are a key instrument to support collaborative innovation as well as technology and knowledge transfer. The regular meetings provide experts from industry and academia valuable market insights, business opportunities and a trust-based environment for professional exchange and personal networking. The QBN Meetings are not ordinary (online) meetings, webinars or workshops, they are unique in terms of participants and topics. There is neither a livestream nor recordings. Each participant attends on an equal footing with video and audio and is asked to attend the whole meeting.
