New course help universities make the most of their IP

On 24 March Pera EEMEA hosted the first workshop in a series of Technology Transfer training programmes.

Held at our Windowist Tower office in Istanbul, the team welcomed delegates from numerous Turkish universities to the How to Establish and Run a Successful H2020 Project Management Office workshop.

Developed in partnership with University College London, Highbury and MITO Technology, the one-day course looked at the best practice of establishing and setting up a successful H2020 Project Management Office as part of a Technology Transfer Office (TTO). It focused on:

  • how to define a university’s international research strategy
  • how this strategy can be implemented in the most cost-effective way whilst at the same time increasing the impact of projects in its portfolio
  • efficient and compliant contract management and auditing processes
  • the importance of business planning not just for this year but as a part ongoing strategy for future years.
