The second SPIRE Capacity Building Session took place on 5-9 March 2018 at the Chulalongkorn University, Thailand. Located in Piman Room at Montien Hotel Bangkok, the second international workshop of the project focused on ‘Technology Transfer Management’. Conducted by University of Turku, Finland, the session provided an in-depth overview of different questions relevant to university staff working in the IP Management area.

The session based on the fundamental need at HEIs to correctly address research and technology commercialisation. Content included TT management practices at HEIs at the European level and a deeper insight into various approaches to TT, IP policy implementation, laws and regulations in different European countries (case studies from UK, Sweden, Finland and Belgium).

The next capacity building session will be in University of Turku next year.
