PIER Innovation Lunch Talks



PIER Innovation Lunch Talks take place several times each year. In regular intervals, we invite entrepreneurs, business and legal experts to give practical insight into different aspects of innovation and business startup. After each talk, there is an informal get-together with free refreshments and snacks where participants have the chance to discuss further questions with the speaker and meet like-minded fellow researchers.
