UK Exploring New Translational Infrastructure – TICs

A new network of UK tech transfer centers based on industry segment hubs has been proposed and given the green light by government officials.

The proposed network of elite national technology and innovation centers (TICs) is “aimed at bridging the gap between academic research and technology commercialization by providing what is described as ‘translational infrastructure.’”

The network of TICs, based on recommendations from Cambridge venture capitalist, Dr Hermann Hauser, is summarized in his report, “The Current and Future Role of Technology and Innovation Centers in the UK” [Businessweekly; more]
