Data insights: New submissions and technology updates

At the start of 2019, we looked at the impact of uploading new submissions to the platform and updating existing technologies with new data and developments.

In short, we found that updating and improving project summaries leads to renewed and sustained engagement. What’s more, universities that publish more technologies tend to receive higher levels of engagement from industry.

View these insights and others in our updates from January 2019 and February 2019.
