Detailed programme

Context and training description

Successful utilization of research is based on collaboration between various actors where value is created both for society and the research community. Research results can be utilized in many ways such as through publication, open access, collaboration, licensing and venture creation among others. Furthermore, the results of research can take on many forms, including data, instructions, and inventions that arepotentially relevant for utilization across both basic and applied research. Decisions regarding utilization also have an ethical dimension - for the society at large, but also for the university, the research group and the individual researcher.

This course will take participants through the process of mapping research and research projects, from identification of intellectual assets to the capture and assessment of research as intellectual assets. Central to this process is the understanding of different sources of knowledge that support and strengthen research projects, the creation of societal value through economic and non-economic means, and the ethical considerations that need to be taken into account.


This training is dedicated to researchers, entrepreneurs and technology transfer professionals willing to experience the challenges related to the integration of research and utilization processes through an intense accelerated academy.
