The UOC’s knowledge transfer event

Since 2012, the UOC has organized SpinUOC each year. It is a knowledge transfer event presenting different projects from the UOC community with economic and social value. It uses an innovative format – presentations of just over six minutes and twenty slides to explain each project. The event also offers the possibility to network – interested individuals, companies and institutions can find out more about the projects by organizing interviews and talking to the project leaders at the so-called SpinMeetings.
