15.07.2009 Best practice trip, led by Vicepresident Linscheid, to the transfer units in Oxford and Cambridge.
The Universities of both Oxford and Cambridge belong
to the oldest in the world, having been founded in the
13th century. Their history reads like an exciting sto-
rybook. Despite their age, both Universities are at the
forefront of academic research and technological inno-
vation. Their transfer units – Isis Innovation at Oxford
and Cambridge Enterprise at Cambridge – are role
models on how knowledge transfer and commerciali-
zation could be successfully executed.
The two day trip in the beginning of june highlighted the ideas and structures
of these models, its efficiency and the people behind. The delegation had
the opportunity to exchange knowledge
and to network.
