GUIDE-days "Göteborgs universitet: Industrial Dating Event"

The Faculty of Science at University of Gothenburg is offering opportunities for representatives of the industry to meet up with strong research groups from the university in order to engage into problem-solving collaborations.

Our vision is to initiate, establish and develop engaging and successful collaborations between academia and commercial actors, between researchers and industrial partners. Thus, GUIDE-days aspire to establish strong and enduring links in the form of joint research projects, education programs with synergistic Bachelor, Master, and Ph.D. projects as well as courses, or even opportunities to create shared office spaces between industrial and academic partners.

What’s in for the industry?

GUIDE-days can help find a matching partner working on a related topic within a similar or from a different discipline. Together, new perspectives are explored and solutions developed to the problems at hand.

What’s in for the academic fellows?

GUIDE-days can help establish new career and innovation paths and provide possibilities to attract project funding for applied sciences.

Our Event in October 2021

The first opportunity will be a lunch-2-lunch event at Lindholmen Conference Centre, Gothenburg on 13-14 October 2021 under the topic “Image processing with artificial intelligence (AI)”.

On the 14 October (9.00-12.00) we will continue with in-depth discussions between selected partners with the objective to establish specific collaborations. 


The tentative program includes three thematic sessions

  • Session A: Machine learning in subsea image analysis
  • Session B: Computer vision in the automotive industry
  • Session C: Image analysis in life science applications

Are you interested?
