The MdM program will promote a specific program to increase the impact of tech and knowledge transfer activities at the Department. In order to support this program, a number of specific talks are organised. Check also the closely related talks about Reproducibility and the ongoing Industrial PhD projects.
"Tech transfer in the context of Open Science"
March 2nd 2017, 15:30h-16:30h
Discussion about the new roles that technology transfer at universities is creating in the context of Open Science, and of specific initiatives driven by the MTG group, such as Essentia (technology licensing), Music Muni (Spin-off) and the Freesound API (Saas)Room and abstract to be added
December 21st 2016, 10h-10:30h
Room 55.410. Roc Boronat 138 (Tànger building)
In this talk we will present a new transference programme that accompanies entrepreneurs from the best national universities and research centres in the tedious task of approaching technologies from lab to the market. The programme challenge is to help researchers and technologists to bridge the gap between discovery and commercialisation of their technologies to build marketable products and create high growth science based businesses. To complement the research activities of the investigators, the programme provides a scientific core team led by entrepreneurs in residence that will be in charge of mobilising internal resources as well as external collaborators whenever needed, freeing scientists from the business side and letting them focus on what they do best, research.
