2024 InnoHive #6: De-Risking Innovation through University Partnerships

Sophie O’Callaghan has worked at the interface of universities and businesses for over 10 years and now manages the portfolio of Knowledge Transfer Partnerships at the University of Exeter.

In this session Sophie will explain how you can engage with universities to support your innovation strategies. She will take a look at the myths around working with universities, consider the diverse mechanisms for drawing knowledge and support out of a university and into your organisation, and in doing so help you to develop long-lasting, collaborative relationships with university partners.
