Bridge the Innovation Gap

How do we translate our societies investment in research and development into positive change in everyone's life? What are the codes we need to crack to go from knowledge production to invention?

Bridge the Innovation Gap

Not enough of our investments in science and research results in global impact. This is an issue that has been discussed; what is needed to increase the innovative output of research?

Since no one is opposed to innovation, we doubt that banging you need to innovate into the head of the scientists is the answer. But what is the answer?

  • Are we focusing on the wrong channels of impact? Patent vs opensource?
  • Are we underestimating the difficulty of innovation?
  • When seen from a scientist's perspective, is commercialisation just plain boring?
  • Are there systemic barriers in academia?
