A launch conference for the CERIM project was held in Bratislava on May 5-6 2009, arranged by the project partner Slovakia Academy of Science. The focus of the conference were the challenges a Central European technology transfer organisation faces in 2009. These challenges were during the first day of the conference discussed by the project´s ten partner organisations.

The second day of the conference had a similar focus but with roughly 60 participants from public research institutions and technology transfer organisations in Slovakia, the Czech republic, Hungary, Italy, Germany, Poland, Slovenia and Austria. Presentations of the technology transfer models in the participant's regions were given and during a panel discussion were the different models compared, problems with the Slovakian technology transfer situation were addressed and possible solutions to theses problems were mentioned. The learning from this conference will work as an important input in future CERIM activities aiming at improving the technology transfer situation in Central Europe.
