Building on the preceding panel discussion, this workshop focuses on the development of appropriate responses to the most important challenges and opportunities encountered by University-linked Business Incubation Programs. All attending program representatives are invited to form groups of 6-8 participants which discuss and analyze each issue using the C.A.R. (Challenge, Action, Result) method. Guided by experienced discussion leaders, all groups give a brief presentation of their discussion results at the end of the workshop.
