Commercialising Research

16 October 2017 - 2:00pm to 7:30pm
Sydney School of Entrepreneurship 651-731 Harris Street Ultimo, NSW 2007

Discover the process of research commercialisation and how scientists translate cutting edge research in a variety of settings.

Thriving economies need both blue sky and applied research. Some research begins and doesn’t necessarily end. There’s no telling where blue sky research may lead, and the open-endedness of academia has led to some of the world’s most profound discoveries. Other research lends itself more easily to commercialisation.

Academia and business might be like chalk and cheese, but these sectors are increasingly collaborating to create new products and services from scientific knowledge to the benefit of all.
