The IEA's Innovation and Competitiveness Observatory will hold the debate How USP Disseminates its Science, Technology and Innovation Outcomes on November 11, from 2.30 pm to 5 pm, in the Institute's Events Room.

The event will be broadcast live over the web.

During the meeting, journalists Mônica Teixeira and Hérika Dias will discuss how the knowledge produced by the University is passed on to society and how we can broaden the dissemination of research produced at USP. Mediation will be in charge of professor Mario Salerno, from the USP's Polytechnic School (POLI) and coordinator of the OIC.
