Since 2011 research projects with a commercial potential at NTNU have been able to apply for funding for "proof of concept" phase. The intent was to increase the successfull monetizing on the research done at NTNU.
What do we know now, 5 years down the road?
Discovery is a proof of concept fund built around NTNU with regional funding partners.
It's purpose is to ease the first steps in monetizing research result to achieve greater impact. The fund has been operating now for 5 years. It has supported 100 projects with the total amount of 45 million NOK.
At this event we will present some numbers on the impact of the fund. We will meet some of the projects that have recieved support. Both to celebrate the success but also to explore if there are insights from the alumni projects that might be relevant to new ones.
A panel will discuss how we will bridge the innovation gap in the future before we end the day by celebrating the birthday kid with bubbles and cakes.
This Event has a separate registration, as it does not demand a ticket to the Technoport 2016 - Crack the code.
