The 2019 Netval Summer Conference will deal with the most important issues in knowledge transfer and has been designed for KT practitioners at international level. Netval is the Italian Network for the Valorisation of Research, with 79 members from universities, public research organizations and research hospitals. We welcome attendees from around the world.

Italian Network for the Valorisation of ResearcH

NETVAL was founded in November 2002 as a network of universities and public research organizations in Italy; it then became an association in September 2007. It has 79 members that represent over 80% of the Italian public research system. NETVAL’s mission includes:

(I) sharing and strengthening the skills of Italian Universities and Public Research Organizations in the field of the valorisation of research results;
(II) providing an interface with industry;
(III) consolidating expertise in the area of commercial projects and intellectual property management;
(IV) developing international contacts for the benefit of NETVAL’s members.

During the last 10 years of activity NETVAL has been focusing its activities on the dissemination of information and culture of Knowledge Transfer (KT) in Italy through initiatives aimed at bringing together the Technology Transfer Offices (TTOs) of Universities and Public Research Organizations through training courses, meetings and thematic working groups. NETVAL has become an authority in the field of knowledge transfer activities and Third Mission, as demonstrated by the numerous projects, meetings and joint events organised, among others, with Italian and international organisations.

The conference will take place in the main hall of the Italian CNR (Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche) in Rome, Piazzale Aldo Moro 7.

SPEAKERS

In conferences it often happens that you listen to a speaker and then you would like to speak with him/her. And this usually happens at coffee breaks and meals. Well, beyond this possibility, there are also “Meet the speakers” sessions in which single speaker will sit in a room, at a specific time, in order to answer questions and share with interested people.

Davide Iannuzzi (1971) is a full professor in experimental physics at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. He has co-authored nearly 100 publications and collected more than 7 million Euros in research funding, including 3 ERC grants. Parallel to his scientific career, he has accumulated more than 10 years of experience in the field of technology transfer. He co-founded Optics11 and led it to grow from a 2-men show to a profitable business of more than 30 people now exporting products all around the world. He is also the initiator and director of the Demonstrator Lab – an innovation laboratory that helps students and researchers to move on in the earliest phase of the idea-to-market process. He has been teaching courses and delivering invited lectures on academic entrepreneurship for nearly 5 years and wrote a successful book on the subject (Entrepreneurship for Physicists, Morgan&Claypool, 2017). He has received several national and international recognitions, among which, most recently, the prestigious NWO-Physics Valorization Award “on account of the valorization of his own research and the attention he gives to facilitating valorization by others.”
