Serving as a bridge between the scientific and business communities, the John Atanasoff Innovation Forum is an event center that hosts a variety of events thematically related to the main focus areas of the Science and Technology Park – science, information and communication technologies, innovation, education and green energy. Events may also be of an economic nature.
