Workshop description: 

The aim of the University Technology Transfer of R&D Innovations workshop is to bring together researchers, firms, and technology transfer practitioners to share knowledge on how to convey results stemming from scientific and technological research to the marketplace and to wider society, along with associated skills and procedures that can create utility for the ones who benefit from the use of project outcomes. This utility can be expressed as benefits that go beyond the opportunity of making money, and it usually involves performing a technical and market assessment, protecting intellectual property rights, promoting, negotiating, and reaching a commercial deal for a technical solution that is novel, has industrial applicability and involving an inventive step that moves knowledge and technology forward.
