The Knowledge Triangle: Enhancing the contributions of Higher Education and Research Institutions to Innovation

OECD Headquarters organizes the conference "The Knowledge Triangle: Enhancing the contributions of Higher Education and Research Institutions to Innovation" from 15 to 16 September 2016.
