With increasing attention on generating returns from R&D investment, there is a growing interest to understand the role of technology transfer, mechanisms and best practices to bring Intellectual Property (IP) to market.
The workshop on Technology Commercialisation offers a practice-oriented and hands-on approach to commercialising new technologies. The course takes participants through a step-by-step process of evaluating new technologies or inventions, understanding the form and merits of different IP protection, familiarising with different go-to-market strategies as well as understanding technology valuation and licensing.
Different types of research collaboration and IP models will be discussed to support industry, university and/or government agency collaboration. Using real-life case studies, the course will provide rich insights into the challenges in technology commercialisation and offer practical tips, tools and platforms to support successful commercialisation.
In today's complex and competitive business world, companies that do not innovate risk being obsolete and irrelevant. Instead of relying entirely on internal ideas, open innovation means that companies should make much greater use of external ideas and technologies in their own businesses, while allowing their unused ideas to be used by others.
The workshop on Open Innovation offers innovation/R&D managers in corporates, SMEs or government agencies insights into how open innovation can work for their organisations, and give them access to tools and platforms offered by IPI to accelerate their innovation journeys through collaboration.
