Bridging the gap between science and industry: Science & Technology Convergence Conference, Armenia

How does an Eastern Partnership country encourage repatriation to reverse ‘brain drain’, explore and establish joint research laboratories and practical collaborations with European and US partners, and work towards creating a national PhD programme in Machine Learning? The EaPConnect project partner in Armenia, IIAP NAS RA, and associates came up with the idea of the ‘Science and Technology Convergence Conference’ (STCC), a platform for researchers, professors, institutions, commercial organisations and funders to meet, supported by the European Union.

Following the success of the first STCC in 2016, the third conference was organised in 2019 by IIAP NAS RA (the Institute of Informatics and Automation Problems of the National Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Armenia) and Smart Gate VC.
