The Institute of Aviation hosted this conference, devoted to marketing of European scientific and research organizations. This year’s edition attracted 140 participants from Belarus, Croatia, Spain, Germany, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Sweden, Turkey and Italy. The two-day conference was not only teeming with presentations, but also became a platform for discussions, meetings and experience sharing. The event was complemented with workshops and a poster session.
The European Forum for Marketing of Scientific and Research Organizations offered its participants a unique opportunity to become familiar with current trends, new tools and instruments and strategies in the marketing of scientific and research organizations. The speakers not only shared with professional observation regarding work in their respective institutions, but they also presented research outputs correlated with the conference topics.
