Effective university-business interactions and mechanisms for the exchange of knowledge, intellectual property, technology and trained people are essential to promote innovation and economic growth.

These issues were discussed at a debate entitled From Lab to Market?, organised by the Cambridge University Science and Policy Exchange (CUSPE) and supported by ideaSpace, Healx3, a company based at ideaSpace West, the Centre for Science and Policy (CSaP), Cambridge Innovation Forum and MedImmune.

Tim Guilliams, founder and CEO at Healx3, wrote a blog post on the proceedings entitled Cambridge knowledge exchange and innovation networks and it featured prominently on the National Centre for Universities & Business (NCUB) website – it was on the front page.

In the blog post, Tim says that understanding how university-business interactions and mechanisms can be improved to maximise academic impact on the economy is a subject that is high on the UK Government agenda.

He says: “There is no doubt that the transfer of technology and intellectual property between universities and businesses is important. However, one could argue that facilitating effective networks and knowledge exchange between both sectors might even have a greater impact on the country’s development.”

Tim is Director of Knowledge Exchange at Cambridge Innovation Forum, co-founder of CUSPE and a Junior Associate Fellow of CSaP.

We grew too – opening a second office in the city centre in 2013 and ideaSpace South three years later, on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus. We are continuing to celebrate a decade of community with our ‘Focus on a Founder’ series. This week we spoke to Alexandra Grigore of Simprints who joined ideaSpace back in 2014.
