PIER Innovation Lunch Talks



PIER Innovation Lunch Talks are held regularly. Once a month, we invite entrepreneurs and various 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 points of interest with the speaker and to meet other researchers interested in innovation and startup topics.
