Fredagskollokvium: Inven2 – UiO’s innovation company – who are we and what do we offer?
Elin Melby, Technology Strategy Manager, invent2.com
Research, education, communication, and innovation are the key drivers in the development of the knowledge society. Innovations can be defined as new or improved products, services, processes, or organizational structures that are used to achieve social benefit and value creation. The universities have a central role in the Government’s effort to readjust the Norwegian economy, where the main focus lies on increased ability to compete and innovate. We see that both national and international research funding sources are increasingly requiring collaboration with industry and potential for innovation. UiO has its own innovation company Inven2 that manages, develops and commercializes work- and research results with commercial potential at UiO. To improve the awareness of innovation and what services Inven2 can provide, this Friday’s colloquium is given by Inven2.
