University POLITEHNICA of Bucharest (UPB) joins the Startup Europe Comes to the Universities (SEC2U) initiative, organized by the Startup Europe University Network (SEUN) and supported by the European Commission (Startup Europe). SEC2U is an initiative to showcase the commitment of European universities to create a strong culture of entrepreneurship and innovation within the academic community.
The research, development and innovation results will be transferred to the society by creating startups and spin-offs with high added value, based on knowledge and technological development that is being generated in the university community. The initiative will generate new collaboration opportunities and help to showcase the entrepreneurial support programmes that are already being developed by different universities.
