Industry University/Government Transactions for Local and Global Benefit
17:30 - 18:00
Research institutions are commonly funded by public monies, with the expectation that the investment in research will deliver benefit directly back to those countries or regions. On the other hand, commercialisation of the technologies arising from this research usually require significant investment from the licensee and relies on exploitation into a large global market to ensure commercial viability.
This is generally a lesser problem for commercialisation offices in countries or regions with large, profitable markets. However, it becomes a much greater challenge for institutions in countries or regions that comprise only a small segment of the total market.
The workshop will focus on challenges in this environment and how deals are being structured to enable both outcomes; from the industry and university/government sides of the transaction.
