The Business & Innovation Network 2016 – BIN @ SP2016, which took place in São Paulo, Brazil, aimed to strengthen the relationship between the academic and the business world through actions related to innovation and entrepreneurship. The BIN @ SP was organized by the University of São Paulo (USP) Innovation Agency (AUSPIN), in partnership with the University of Sheffield and the University of Porto. The event took place at the International Broadcasting Center (CDI) and at AUSPIN facilities, both located in the Butantã neighborhood in São Paulo. The event was attended by 677 participants and speakers from 30 countries of the five continents.
BIN@SP was a highly motivating experience with open sessions, debates, action tanks dedicated to different themes, Technologies Showroom & Business Showcase exhibition, a 48h challenge on a society problem, a surprising social programme and many other happenings. The general theme of BIN@SP was “From workbench to production: How must the university participate and optimise the process?”
“Encouraging the creation of new products and services needs an international look. Increasingly, innovation depends on an environment with actors from different cultures to evolve.” (professor Vanderlei Bagnato, BIN@ Coordinator at the University of São Paulo)
