BSUN Events


Following  a  joint  initiative  of  the  rectors  of  Vienna  University  of  Technology  and  RWTH  Aachen  University, this conference started in 1980 with the aim of establishing a forum for top representatives of leading science and engineering universities in Europe for:

  • discussing topics of major common concern, that are not discussed in other fora,
  • identifying differences and commonalities of existing solutions to problems of common interest,
  • developing new ideas and - if appropriate - preparing recommendations on specific topics, and 
  • forming a ‘think tank’ for the future development of the universities of technology in Europe.

The 2018 Conference  topic will give an opportunity to discuss different aspects of the role of universities in developing innovation eco-systems, such as:

  • How can we provide leadership in an ecosystem context?
  • How can governments best support us and our partners?
  • How to best integrate university missions in education, research and innovation?
  • How to be organised: University structures and processes supporting innovation
  • How to combine basic and applied research towards innovation
  • How do we build on international experience of innovation ecosystems?
  • How do get value by linking across innovation ecosystems? 
  • How do we develop a new generation of impactful and excellent researchers?
