Last week, as part of the Innovation Dublin 2010 festival, I was invited to give a lecture to the MBA class at Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School.
I spoke on the topic of IP commercialization with the title "Invention or Innovation?"
The interchange with the audience was stimulating.
It is encouraging to see how conciousness is growing in the area of IP commercialization.
Also, while I was in Dublin, I attended the launch of the Innovation Academy, a collaborative initiative by the Innovation Alliance to educate PhD students about matters of innovation and commercialization.
At these difficult times it is good that there are endeavors that are focussed on the future.
