Develop, Promote, Connect – PraxisUnico conference

20 June 2016

Last week I attended the largest event in the Knowledge Exchange and Commercialisation (KEC) sector – the annual PraxisUnico conference – with Magnus Johnston and Andrew Dowling. Fittingly for 2016 as we commemorate 400 years since the death of William Shakespeare, the conference was held in Stratford-Upon-Avon.

This year’s conference theme of "Develop, Promote, Connect" was explored in a variety of sessions led by expert speakers across 15-17 June 2016. Presentations explored topics such as development of the KE Framework, innovative models for exploitation of new technologies, and how to manage early stage technologies to achieve successful commercial outcomes. Networking sessions allowed for continued discussion of these topics amongst the over 300 KEC professionals in attendance. The need for collaboration across the KE ecosystem – including commercial partners and funding institutions, as well as IP firms and universities – emerging as a key theme for this year.

Haseltine Lake LLP continued its longstanding support of this conference and once again we were pleased to be a sponsor. We sponsored the gala drinks reception, which provided a fantastic networking opportunity, bringing together people from across the KEC sector. Magnus Johnston also gave a short speech welcoming delegates and noting the importance of fostering relationships within the KEC community.   

The wide range of expert speakers, topics and high calibre delegates was truly impressive and we look forward to attending the PraxisUnico conference in Sheffield in 2017.
