To encourage industrial participation at TRA2014, companies (large companies and SMEs) are invited to submit Outreach Marketplaces, i.e. posters only. The aim is to demonstrate the impact of research on industrial deployment, job creation and the response to societal challenges, and to showcase on-going industrial projects and achievements of industrial research. Innovative and original products and achievements are expected, but no commercial presentations or  company-only descriptions (which are welcome in company exhibition booths).

The list of Outreach Marketplace displayed on each day will be part of the final programme.
