Conference & event news

R&D Management Conference 2019  


Letizia Mortara is proudly announcing two new events which will take place in 2020 under the umbrella of the R&D Management Conference brand.

At the successful recent event this June, led by the Ecole Polytechnique and HEC, Prof Beverly Wagner invited the audience to Stathclyde University between the 29th of June and the 1st of July 2020 to attend “Innovation across boundaries: historical reflections and future visions”. This event will mark the 40th anniversary of this important conference for the Technology and Innovation Management community and will seek to discuss innovation across science, management and engineering disciplines.
A further opportunity to engage in 2020 will be a special “R&D Management Symposium” which will be Hosted by the Chang Institute of Entrepreneurship at the Beedie School of Business at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver. Dr Sarah Lubik and Prof Elicia Maine, both formerly at CTM, will invite participants to contribute to a debate on how to support Science-based ventures on the 4th and 5th of August 2020. It will be a great opportunity to see our friend Dr Simon Ford as part of this collaboration.
Both meetings are open to contributions and collaboration with industrial partners. Please contact Letizia in case of interest lm367@cam.ac.uk

Tribosonics workshop 


As part of our research efforts to co-create tools jointly with companies for the strategic management of Intellectual Property we recently ran workshops with different companies, at the Bradfield Centre in the Cambridge Science Park and notably a workshop at the IfM with Tribosonics, a Sheffield based ultrasonic company, in which we tested our workshop process for developing IP strategies. Tribosonics’ CEO Glenn Fletcher commented it is “exciting for our business and our team to be working with such eminent and forward thinking partners and collaborators in innovation and IPR, which play such an important part in our Scale UP strategy.” A recent article featured in The Manufacturer’s May edition provides more details on our IP strategy development tool.
