Knowledge Transfer: experiences from the University front line

Universities have adopted different models of how they exploit and develop knowledge transfer. What are universities' experiences of these?

Government ministers, university Vice Chancellors, business leaders, academics, funders and entrepreneurs all agree that the UK's future social and economic wellbeing depends on our ability to release value from the knowledge base to increase productivity through greater innovation - the transfer from ideas to wealth.

Universities have adopted different models of knowledge transfer - licencing, "outsourcing" IP exploitation to an independent company, operating an "in-house" knowledge transfer body, to name but three. What are universities experiences of these different models? What can be done to help universities and businesses better work together? Leading, seasoned professionals from the world of university knowledge transfer will discuss their experiences, with at least one-third of the event for audience discussion.
