An open-door event for commercialisation professionals to share information relating to good practice and successful case studies in the Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities.
There seems a drive within the community of commercialisation professionals to engage more with the Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities in a practical and meaningful way. Some of this emanates from the drive for more impact within the research funding sphere where Knowledge Exchange has led the way, but carrying this through to tangible commercialisation opportunities for which standard Technology Transfer Office approaches have little traction is proving much more challenging.
Isis Innovation will host and facilitate an event for commercialisation professionals to come together and share knowledge about their successes and good practice in commercialisation from the Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities. This is open to staff in all Universities who may have an interest in this nascent area.
This is expected to be a highly interactive event. This event is FREE.
Programme will include:
· Facilitated discussion on the subject of incubators and different approaches
· Facilitated discussion on the subject of Social Entrepreneurship and different approaches
· Facilitated discussion on licensing and more traditional venture development approaches
· Morning and afternoon refreshments and lunch will be provided
This knowledge sharing event will be held at the offices of Isis Innovation Limited, Buxton Court, 3 West Way, Oxford OX2 0SZ. Map.
Date: 27th September 2016 between 10.00 and 16.00
