The Knowledge Stock Exchange (KSE) is a networking platform at the ASTP-Proton Annual Conference.

Plan your own KSE agenda by attending any of the following 15 minutes sessions:

  • Marketplace: interactive company and EU projects presentations.
  • Initiative sharing: informal discussions on new initiatives in tech transfer.
  • Face-to-face meetings: schedule private meetings with your peers.



As participants, you can plan your own 90 minute-KSE agenda by attending any of the 15 minutes sessions of your choice. The recognisable gong will be sounded every 15 minutes allowing you to move and attend all three tracks of the KSE; the information corner, initiative sharing, and face-to-face meetings.



Learn about companies’ technological needs, services, tools that can help you boost your TTO activity. Each 15 minutes slot of the information corner consist of an interactive presentation using PowerPoint followed by Q&A session with the audience.

  • The information corner is part of a sponsoring package
  • Companies presenting will be recognised as KSE sponsors of the Annual Conference
