D8 Fostering Transfer from Social Sciences and Humanities
Target Audience: All Audiences
Christoph Koeller, G&K
Christopher McKinney, Augusta University
Technology transfer activities traditionally focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines. But increasingly the scholars and researchers from Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) are requesting to transfer their competencies and research projects into society and the economy. This new business area for technology transfer offices (TTO) is growing. The TTO is becoming a knowledge transfer office (KTO). In this interactive session, we’ll discuss three important topics identified by knowledge transfer professionals as keys to expanding your portfolio: integration of SSH knowledge into interdisciplinary projects; identification of SSH projects and competences with transfer and impact potential; and development of revenue models for SSH transfer that suit KTOs and universities. Attend this session and learn how to mobilize the knowledge inherent in SSH research and adapt your office’s service portfolio to the needs of SSH.
