We have partnered TenU, the collaboration between the tech transfer offices of University of Cambridge, Columbia University, University of Edinburgh, Imperial College London, KU Leuven, University of Manchester, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Oxford, Stanford University and University College London to bring you three panels recorded for the podcast live in front of a select group of guests in London last month.

The first panel features Euan Robertson, chief operating officer of Simons Foundation, Karin Immergluck, executive director of the Office of Technology Licensing at Stanford University, and Diarmuid O’Brien, chief executive of University of Cambridge’s tech transfer arm Cambridge Enterprise.

The panel discusses how universities can better celebrate innovation, what the differences in that regard are between the US and Europe, and how important it is to have the backing of university leadership to really make a difference.
