Team SA is kicking off their 2015 calendar of events with “Getting to know Tonsley,” a networking and information session being held down at the brand new Tonsley research, education and industrial park. We’ve all heard about the re-development and the high hopes held for its ability to foster greater collaboration and awaken the state’s dying manufacturing sector – but what in reality is Tonsley, and how will this new development integrate into and aid the state’s existing innovation ecosystem?
KCA's brand new two-day interactive licensing course has been specifically developed with university technology transfer professionals in mind, and will be for those practicing individuals who already have a basic understanding of the licensing process. The objective of this course is to up skill the licensor, and content will build upon the basics and focus on areas where people most commonly fall down in academic technology transfer licensing.
"Raising the Bar" is the theme of the 2015 Annual Conference. As we’re all very aware, there is increasing expectation from government entities for Australia to improve on the conversion of research to commercialisation with much of the recent press around this sector being criticism that Australia is not translating research as effectively as it could. Further to this, there are increasing expectations being placed of knowledge transfer offices from internal stakeholders who want to see such organisations perform more duties with less resource. Pressure is being placed on our industry from all sides to increase its effectiveness and do more with less, and on top of this, there is a lack of profile and a lack of perceived value around what we do. This conference will aim to workshop through some of these issues, and will provide attendees with tools as to how we can raise our position and better advocate the profession as a collective.
