Posted on 11.10.2011

​The Prague 2011 Conference on Removing Barriers to Successful Innovation will focus on how some of the biggest players in technology transfer and business innovation in Great Britain overcame their specific barriers and became successful in placing to market what has emerged from university research and development.

• Overcoming obstacles in commercialization of knowledge and research results, its impact for the university.
• Experience with setting up a start-up business in Great Britain and in the Czech Republic.
• Innovation, start-up and spin-off support mechanisms in British and Czech Accelerators.

• Definition of synergies and best practice ways to succeed.
Conference will include 3 workshops:
Workshop 1:
