VALORISATION AND RESEARCH COMMERCIALISATION AT UNIVERSITIES
In light of Knowledge Valorisation Week, initiated by the European Commission and taking place on 27-30 April, join us for a conversation with professional staff and researchers with commercialisation experience from Europe and North America to discuss developing and managing valorisation and research commercialisation.
Universities are increasingly demonstrating their important role in addressing regional and societal needs. Therefore, institutional mechanisms and support structures within universities are crucial for the enablement of valorisation and commercialisation to further collaborate with business and government and continue to enhance impact of research on society. Nevertheless, there are still several challenges ahead for universities to leverage their full potential and transform traditional ways of working. This panel will discuss the notion of valorisation and how it differs from research commercialisation. Furthermore, we will discuss how universities can enhance their valorisation capabilities through training and skills development, mentoring and leadership, while exploring different commercialisation pathways across Social Sciences and Humanities and STEM as well as overcoming barriers.
Gain insight into the developing and managing valorisation and different commercialisation pathways, challenges, and success factors from experts around the globe.
If you are a university leader, manager, professional, academic or researcher looking for ways to enhance your institution’s performance and impact through valorisation and research commercialisation, this panel discussion is for you.
