Skoltech hosts 10th biannual STRIP conference

The 10th conference of the Skoltech Translational Research and Innovation Program (STRIP) was held at the institute last week.

The aim of STRIP is to inspire innovation and entrepreneurship, and to build bridges between academia and industry by facilitating the implementation of research results in products and processes that are of practical interest to the economy and society.

Skoltech faculty projects are selected within the program and supported further to commercialize their developments. During each iteration of the conference, participants working on projects that advance the above goal can be awarded one year of funding for translational research.

The program aims generally to reduce technical and marketing risks, ensuring that selected inventions meet market technology standards and discover their niche.

STRIP conferences are held biannually. During this week’s gathering, each project’s developments are evaluated by a team of experts from industry and academia.
