Commercializing science and technology is NOT the same as it used to be…and neither are the players nor the rules. Always a contact sport – played primarily by those trained in the art and well equipped by the biggest and “best” companies - technology commercialization based on research from universities ranging from materials and chemicals to biomass and energy is an ever growing player in the game.
And it doesn’t stop there – government labs also have the mandate to commercialize and with all of this rule changing and corporate downsizing - companies are extolling the value and importance of Open Innovation, and former employees are creating ventures!
In this shifting landscape, where EVERYONE can play, what does it take to play well and very successfully?
Judith Giordan will answer these questions and share her insights on the new rules of the game.
