Webinar features top expert on building innovation ecosystems

One of the hottest topics for universities lately is how to nurture and benefit from a strong hyper-local innovation ecosystem (Hy-LIE) — the accessible and integrated local community of start-up and mature companies, entrepreneurs, innovators, mentors and early-stage investors needed to bring university technologies and start-ups from the lab to the marketplace. Not only are Hy-LIEs essential to tech transfer programs in a direct way — by ensuring all the pieces of the research commercialization puzzle are in place and accessible — they are expected by many experts to be critical in determining which universities remain in, ascend to, or fall out of the top tier of research universities.

Without a vibrant Hy-LIE, even the most storied and prestigious institutions will not be able to sustain their position as top researchers and students migrate to schools that have the most powerful Hy-LIEs in place. That’s why Technology Transfer Tactics’ Distance Learning Division recruited the top expert on Hy-LIEs, Mike Cohen, Director of Innovation Ecosystem Development at UC Berkeley Office of Technology Licensing, to lead this groundbreaking webinar: University Hyper-Local Innovation Ecosystems: How to Grow & Leverage Your Strategic Potential, scheduled for next Tuesday, September 10, and also available on DVD or on-demand video.
