The Queen’s Market-Focused Research Workshop Series is a program covering topics such as market/technology assessments, design thinking, intellectual property, effective communication, and commercialization strategies to support your research, research partnerships, and commercialization/startup formation activities.
The program is designed for graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and faculty members conducting research in fields in which knowledge mobilization or commercialization of the research outcome is likely or who have a startup idea.
Each half day workshop will cover:
- Strategies for connecting and communicating with industry and the health-care sector so that you can make a critical assessment of your research/technology and validate the market opportunity through primary and secondary market research.
- Intellectual property (IP) and the role IP plays in the translation/commercialization of health-innovation research and how to conduct patentability and freedom-to-operate searches.
- Regulatory, quality, and clinical affairs including regulatory pathways (both Canada and US) for health innovations, quality requirements, design of pre-clinical studies and clinical trials.
- Commercialization strategies for health innovations including licensing and startup formation.
