Ever thought of what it would be like to develop your research findings commercially? Or how working together with industry could benefit your research? UU Innovation invites you to a lunch seminar where you can meet three researchers who are using different paths to turn their research results into commercial products and services.

It Takes Two to Tango!
Successfully combining research with starting a business

Co-founded by Sara Thorslund and Johan Kreuger in 2009, Gradientech develops products based on microfluidic technology combined with real-time imaging of cells. How did they combine successful research careers with their work in Gradientech? What have they learned since starting the company and what pitfalls have they found?

If You Can’t Imagine Something Marvelous, You’re Not Going to Find it!
How collaborations are turning the dream of an injectible bioceramic glue into reality

With a background from industry, Philip Procter is back in academia focusing on projects that link academic research to clinical problems around biomaterials and bone fixation. Whilst innovation is fueled initially on optimism and the hopes of one or two individuals, eventually it will need both collaboration and funds. How are collaborations contributing to realising the dream of an injectable glue?

We will provide a light lunch from 11:30.

Please register here before 5 June.

We look forward to meeting you!
