Creating value from knowledge – An introduction to innovation management

The workshop aims to give an understanding of what it means to translate knowledge, or ideas, into something that creates economic and societal benefit – in other words innovation. The workshop will develop the participants’ ability to relate to how business views knowledge and give an understanding of what it takes to exploit knowledge for commercial gain. It also looks at the role of different functions such as technology transfer offices in universities to help this process that is immensely important to society.

The workshop is very practical and interactive in nature, giving participants skills and understanding that they themselves can apply rather than business theory, through current business approaches to innovation will be discussed.


Target group:

Researchers interested in commercialising their research; those interested in start-ups.
