From Invention to Industry: Routes to Market for Disruptive Technologies
Click here to download the session presentation
Theme: Cross sector
By disruptive technologies we mean technologies that allow something to be done that was not possible before, or was possible only in theory. The term was coined for very good reasons: lives, and businesses, are simply not the same after its introduction. Neither are the business models used in its exploitation. In taking disruptive technologies forward it is a challenge to match technologies to potential markets, build critical mass in capabilities and systems, and produce sufficiently compelling results to allow investors and funders to provide the necessary backing. But if successful, entirely new markets, or even new industries, can result.
In this session we will explore some of the markets which have been created by technology-inspired disruptive technologies and we will look at the routes taken to their market. And therein lays an opportunity to look at what we can learn from these routes and how the Technology Strategy Board’s Emerging Technologies and Industries Strategy can help UK business disrupt the World.
Key benefits of attending:
- To learn more about the approach being taken in the UK to the commercialisation of disruptive technologies
- Discuss key issues around routes to market
- Make your input and suggestions on how the strategy could best be implemented
This session will be hosted by John Collins, Lead Technologist, Emerging Technologies & Industries, Technology Strategy Board, and will be joined by
Dr Alison Fielding, CTO, IP Group plc.
