Conference on driving innovation from science to business

From 2008-03-06 to 2008-03-06, France
A conference on driving innovation from science to business will be held in Aix en Provence, France, on 6 March. The event, which is organised by the EU-funded Trans2Tech project, will investigate topics related to the marketing of research in response to the industry and business' needs and requirements.

Participants will have the opportunity to discuss issues that hinder efficient knowledge and technology transfer (K&TT), including legal and organisational barriers, the cultural gap between the business and sciences communities and the fragmented markets for knowledge and technology, in order to define successful mechanisms to strengthen their partnerships with research users.

This event will also see the launch of a catalogue of good marketing practices, focusing on knowledge and technology transfer as experienced throughout Europe.
