Session SP 1: Women in science and technology (Room: Estrel C2) 16:00 17:40, 28 July
Convener/Chair: Dr. Hyong Sil Cho (Microsoft, Netherlands;
Session description: Women have made significant contributions to science from the earliest times. Historians with an interest in gender and science have illuminated the scientific endeavors and accomplishments of women, the barriers they have faced, and the strategies implemented to have their work peer-reviewed and accepted in major scientific journals and other publications. Since 20th centuries, more and more women are acknowledged by prizes and awards in the field of science and technology. EKC 2016 dedicates a session to women in different fields of science and technology.

Session SP 2: Technology transfer and entrepreneurship in Europe and Korea (Room: Estrel C3) 09:00 - 10:40, 29 July *


Convener: Dr. Migeun Park (University of Strathclyde, UK;

Chair: Dr. Wonsun Park (GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel, Germany)

Session description: With state funding for universities and research institutes under increasing pressure, many institutions are focusing on generating income through commercial activities. One example is the technology transfer to generate revenue through commercial exploitation of intellectual property. This session will provide an overview of the practical methods which are currently used in Europe and Korea and success cases. Spin-outs develop, on a commercial basis, inventions arising from academic research. There are many possible legal structures, but the spin-out process usually involves establishing a new company, to which intellectual property rights “IPR” developed by the institutes are licensed or transferred. A spin-out structure allows external investment and can be used to incentivise inventors through the allocation of shares in the spin-out. The Institutes will receive income from the IPR sale/licence and Institutes may also acquire share capital so that it can benefit from an increase in the value of the spin-out itself. This session will present and discuss about the spin-out process, hold shares in the spin-out and/or licence IPR, as well as the way to provide ongoing support to the spin-out in raising finance, management and business planning.
