ENRIITC your Knowledge - The first series is ready to go!

We are pleased to announce the upcoming start of ENRIITC your Knowledge, a series of online training and organisational webinars targeted to experts involved in setting up collaborations between Research Infrastructures and Industry, such as Industrial Liaison Officers (ILO) and Industry Contact Officers (ICO). The overall aim of this webinar series is to share knowledge, expertise, skills and best practices amongst ILOs and ICOs in order to improve performance and increase collaboration between industry and RIs.


Webinar #1: “The ILO and ICO roles for beginners"

This 1st ENRIITC your Knowledge webinar, will be exploring two important roles:

  • ILO (Industry Liaison Officers), officially appointed by the member states and associated countries to stimulate the collaboration among the national industry and the international RIs;
  • ICO (Industry Contact Officers), research infrastructures staff in charge of developing business relations with all potential industrial suppliers and users.

One of the main goal of the ENRIITC project, is paving the way for future synergies and collaborations between these two crucial roles. Different ILOs and ICOs will present their views on their role and key performance indicators.
