What drives science doesn’t always drive business – so what’s the pathway for successful commercialisation?

We are privileged to live in an ecosystem suffused with ‘great science’, but does the greatness of the science necessarily translate to the success of the innovation that arises from it?

Sometimes it seems to be more about: timing and whether it is the right thing at the right time; who drives the translation and commercialisation; who invests in the translation and commercialisation; whether a business model is as innovative as the science and whether the driving entrepreneurs are able to pivot the science and business model to match changing external factors.

This is a joint event between the Entrepreneurship Centre at Cambridge Judge Business School and Babraham Research Campus.

Chaired by Dr Andy Richards CBE, Board Chairman, Babraham Research Campus
