                                      Managing the University–Industry Interface
                                             3rd – 4th October 2005, Cadiz Spain

    The Cadiz Training School marks the fourth event in ProTon Europe‟s
    Training Programme. The School is designed to deliver basic concepts in the
    management of knowledge and the transfer between Universities and Industry.
    The hallmark of ProTon Europe’s programmes is that they deliver high quality,
    practical training. Experienced KT practitioners, specialists in their field, lead the
    courses. They share their expertise and knowledge through interactive workshops,
    delivering a mix of presentations, group discussion, case study work, use of tools
    and practical exercises.
    The Cadiz Training School opens with plenary sessions planned to identify the
    challenges KT professionals face and to provide a KT Framework within which to
    orient the areas of activity in which they engage. The second half of the morning
    moves to KT Policy Development and includes the first of the „learning by doing‟
    workshops. The programme then provides for a series of workshops covering:
        “The Management of Innovation”
        - Setting Up and Running Spin-Off Companies
        - Licensing: Dissecting a Standard Agreement
        - Understanding IP & Policies Necessary for its Exploitation
        “The Management of Transfer Offices”
        - KT Practices: Working in the TO
        - Marketing Research: from the Lab to the Market Place
        - KT Resources: Building and Developing a Team of Experts
    Delegates can follow a single stream or pick-and-mix workshops (for this
    purpose some workshops will be repeated twice).
    The Cadiz Training School contributes to ProTon Europe’s mission to raise
    the professional competence of knowledge transfer practitioners by facilitating
    an on-going programme of training and staff exchange, and by disseminating
    models, tools and examples of good practice.
