How are leading industry teams using a new market pull approach for academic partnerships?

Traditionally, industry professionals have expressed interest in a specific research area and then had to wait for relevant technologies to arise from universities. Unfortunately, this often slows down the process of research commercialisation and is time consuming for R&D teams who are having to actively scout out suitable opportunities.

In this webinar, we demonstrate how leading industry teams are successfully using a market pull approach for academic partnerships in the form of our proactive scouting tool Discover. We discuss the ins-and-outs of creating a Discover campaign, how universities have previously interacted with them, and answer further questions from the audience about this relatively new approach.
