Cambridge Enterprise will organize 2-weeks training entitled “A Capacity Building Programme in Intellectual Property (IP) Commercialisation for Senior Decision Makers of Technology Transfer Offices (TTO) in Turkish Universities" between 21th of November and 2nd of December in Cambridge, UK. This programme builds on the UK-Turkey Year of Science and Innovation 2015-16 Practical Workshop on IP Commercialisation held in Turkey in 2015.
The training programme is funded by the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) through the UK Prosperity Fund. It will therefore be free to the selected participants and covers the costs of the programme in Cambridge (flights, accommodation, meals etc.)
Please find a Survey to be completed by the delegates who is interested in joining the programme. The purpose of this survey is to help us to design the programme to make it truly useful to yourself and to the other participants. Note that the subjects for discussion will not be limited to IP matters but include the funding of start-ups and the ecosystem needed to support successful innovation. We recognise that some senior policy makers at Universities in Turkey may also wish to attend. If so, we will do our best to include them on the course.
We anticipate a high demand for places on this course so please return the completed surveys by7th of October. There will be a selection period which will be run by Cambridge Enterprise and FCO. We will finalise and announce the list of successful participants on 21th of October.
Following the Cambridge programme, we will continue to support delegates through personal mentoring as they implement what they have learned during the course. There will be a final workshop in Istanbul in 2017 which we will attend.
We very much look forward to receiving your application and welcoming you to Cambridge.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact.
