Joint ICT KTN and Academic and Industry SIG Event
'Academia and Industry Working Together: More than a letter of support'
In the past the traditional approach to academic-industrial partnerships was for the academic to ask a company to write a letter supporting a grant proposal and then for both to quietly forget about each other until it was time to write the next grant proposal. In 2003 Henry Chesbrough published the classic book “Open innovation: the new imperative for creating and profiting from technology” which described successful industrial-academic partnerships and set out a vision for greater collaboration. ‘Academia and Industry Working Together’ will describe best practice for collaboration between industry and academia and how to increase the benefits to all partners, giving perspectives from different players within the open innovation environment, including academics, large industry, small companies, technology transfer offices and funding bodies. We look forward to a lively discussion!
Confirmed speakers for this event are Professor Andy Hopper of Computer Lab - University of Cambridge, Julian Peck of Cambridge Enterprise and Neil Crockett of Connected Digital Economy Catapult.
With the traditional letter-of-support method into academic-industrial partnerships proving to be less than efficient, many other approaches to building and maintaining these pairings have emerged over the last decade to secure their success. So what works, what doesn’t and how can it be improved?
Join this insightful half-day event set in esteemed Cambridge surroundings to discuss how these approaches have evolved and what this means for future partnerships. As well as the day’s hot topics, there will be ample networking opportunities and lunch shall be provided from 1pm. We look forward to a lively discussion!
