4:20 PM CASE STUDY: Proof Of Concept Funding To De-Risk And Increase Investment Readiness

To maximise the economic impact of research, institutions need to demonstrate the value of their research to potential licensees and investors. In this session, Ellen Gorissen explores the importance of funding for a PoC to translate science benefits into commercial benefits and to de-risk technology ahead of commercialisation. This allows for more meaningful conversations with industry and results in deals that have balanced sharing of risks and returns.

  • Ensuring research is based off market need and therefore can be translated and commercialised
  • Identifying the characteristics of winning research and commercialisation strategy
  • Overcoming risk adversity to achieve innovation
  • Exploring Industry and Government roles in funding and investment for greater return
