Stephen Dunne, Maximilian Kotzur, Sam Waes, Iza Ratman-Kłosińska, Xavier Marcet, Julián Vinué, Marta Borao and Rainer Meckenstock will be speakers at KIM Conference 2016.

The next KIM Conference will take place the 14th of June and, as every year, it will be the most important knowledge transfer meeting in Spain.

This time the day will be even more special. Thanks to the interesting topic proposed -“Innovation as a business growth driver”- and the synergies created between experts from the Knowledge Agents Alliance (KAA) and other experts in innovation, it has been possible to make the most international experts meeting to date.
