Innovation and Investment

EPIcentre Innovation and Investment

About the Event

The EpiCentre in Haverhill is hosting a online live debate, bringing together leading universities to share best practice on spinouts and commercialising Intellectual Property (IP).

Businesses and investors will have the chance to hear about the huge potential of working with top universities, while innovative companies will also be given the chance to pitch for funding from angel investors. The live debate will see the University of Cambridge and University of Oxford outline how they built their global reputations for supporting spinouts and entrepreneurial academics. Meanwhile the University of Essex will explain its progress to being the number one university for working with businesses through Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) and how it unlocked millions in angel investment for start-up businesses in the region.

Professor Andy Neely OBE is the Pro-Vice Chancellor for Enterprise and Business Relations at the University of Cambridge and Professor Chas Bountra who is Pro-Vice Chancellor for Innovation at the University of Oxford will be taking part in the live debate organised by The EpiCentre in Haverhill, part of Oxford Innovation’s network of 27 centres around the UK. They will share the work that is being done to support their scientific communities as well as creating infrastructure to assist entrepreneurial academics who want to take their research ideas and flourish through commercialisation.

Professor Chris Greer who is Pro-Vice Chancellor for Research at the University of Essex will be joining to share an alternative perspective on supporting commercialisation. Essex has more than 40 active KTPs supported by funding from UKRI to encourage collaboration between businesses and university researchers, the highest number in the UK.

The event will share knowledge and best practice for commercialising new technologies and ideas to support the UK’s ambition to be a ‘science superpower’.

The second part of this event will be a showcase 6 innovative companies pitching for investment. A combined network of 630 angels made up of Oxford Investment Opportunity Network (OION) and Cambridge Angels will be invited to the live stream.
