Event description

Description

The talk will present a novel translational research & development framework for linking university science and engineering research to commercial outcome. The framework can help university investigators interested in bringing their ideas to market. It is also relevant to university investigators who might not intend to turn their early-stage innovations into businesses, but rather advance the development of the innovations to the point where they become attractive for others (e.g., entrepreneurs, industry), to embrace the challenge of developing the innovations further for the market.

Presenter:

Carlos is Assistant Professor and Engineering Chair in Entrepreneurship with the Faculty of Engineering & Applied Science at Memorial University. His research work lies at the intersection of academia, innovation and entrepreneurship; it is concerned with turning academic research outcomes into successful businesses. Carlos has been studying efficient and effective ways of translating basic and applied research outcomes into commercially viable products and services. This includes the identification of both best practices for successful technology innovation, transfer and commercialization; and barriers in the ecosystem that are hindering the translation of university innovations into successful businesses.

This session is part of the Business of Research Series.

Join NL SUPPORT and partners from across Memorial University and beyond for a series of in-person and online sessions that will help you see your research through a different lens. We aim to influence behavior change in health care through quality research involving patient engagement and knowledge translation. Along with these important components of health care research, another way that research can have an impact on the health care system is by demonstrating the economic and commercial value of that research so that it can better inform health policy.

Hear about the different avenues that you can take to make the most of your research outcomes, improve the competitiveness of your CV and funding applications, help your research grow with changing academic environments, and more!

With guest speakers from the Memorial Centre for Entrepreneurship, Technology Transfer and Commercialization Office, Genesis Centre, and Faculty of Business Administration among others, we will cover topics such as:

  • linking research to commercial outcomes;
  • how to pitch your research;
  • intellectual property protection and protocol; and
  • business case development in the context of health research.
