IfM hosts final Science2Society event
The Future of Open Innovation Practices Day was hosted by the IfM in Cambridge on 13th February, as the culmination of the EC-funded project Science2Society.
Science2Society has researched the future of interaction between universities, industries and broader society as a whole. This has included creating pilots and sharing good practices, guidelines and training materials that improve awareness and practical performance in seven concrete university-industry-society interfacing schemes especially affected by Science 2.0 and open innovation.
The final event, held in the Crausaz Wordsworth Building at Robinson College, was opened with a keynote speech from Professor Tim Minshall on open innovation research. The day included interactive workshops and talks which showcased tangible mechanisms for facilitating stakeholder interaction to ensure science’s impact on society and the markets.
The Science2Society consortium shared its key findings and recommendations with attendees, to support the ongoing innovation learning process.
