For some years, interaction between universities and business has taken second place in importance behind the REF and the employability agenda. InnovationKT 2014 will explore how universities can take advantage of improvements in the UK economy and the steer given by Sir Andrew Witty in his recent review, to revitalise the third mission.
InnovationKT wil be of interest to all knowledge professionals - those academics, business people, managers and researchers working with innovation, enterprise, knowledge transfer, exchange and sharing.
Featuring world-class speakers, oral presentation sessions and interactive workshops, the InnovationKT 2014 conference will provide an excellent opportunity to publish a paper in journal and book form, and at the same time disseminate, share and discuss the impact of university-business and business-business interactions.
