"Multinational experts find "common language" at Pujiang Innovation Forum: "Professors should focus on the laboratory, not the negotiating table"

"Except for a few 'polymaths', most professors can't figure out the various details of the translation of results." "Professors should focus on their own research fields, and not spend their energy on the negotiation table." The first sentence is said by the Shanghai Jiao Tong University Institute of Advanced Industrial Technology Dean Liu Yan Gang, the latter is from the former president of the University of Haifa, Israel David Faraggi (David Faraggi), they found in yesterday's Pujiang Innovation Forum "science and technology services" sub-forum. "A Common Language".
Participating experts said that as long as a place has a developed science and technology services industry, there is no need for professors to be at the negotiating table, but also to ensure a steady stream of scientific and technological achievements into productivity.

"After the right is established, colleges will produce ten millionaires a year.

"The problem of the transfer of scientific and technological achievements is an inevitable phenomenon of our country's scientific research and innovation to the 'parallel' or 'leading' stage, if we are still in the tracking and imitation stage, the transformation of the road people have explored well for you, there is no This problem." In Liu Yanguang's view, the challenge of transferring scientific and technological achievements is a necessity brought about by our rapid technological development.
In June last year, the "Shanghai Regulations on the Promotion of the Transfer of Scientific and Technological Achievements" began to be implemented, which clearly allows not less than 70% of the proceeds of transformation to the team, the transfer of scientific and technological achievements of Shanghai Jiao Tong University was suddenly activated. According to Liu YANGANG, there are more than 20 new companies established every year in Shanghai Jiao Tong University with the professor's intellectual property rights at a discount, and there are at least 10 "millionaire" professors every year.
If the scientific and technological achievements from the laboratory to the market, the road is compared to the "last kilometer", then, universities and market science and technology services are equivalent to each walk 500 meters.

Liu Yan Gang said: "When the professor has the intention to transform the results, Shanghai Jiaotong University Institute of Advanced Industrial Technology will be the professor's scientific research results simply 'packaging' a bit, such as a simple confirmation of the right to clarify the transformation of the results of the follow-up equipment and resources needed, and then handed over to the community's science and technology service institutions to take over. They are looking for matchmaking companies in niche areas for results."
Yu Xiaojing, general manager of Shanghai Rongzhi Intellectual Property Agency Co., Ltd, a leading technology transfer agency in Shanghai, said, for example, when they wanted to help a hospital in Shanghai land a new cancer treatment plan, they screened the innovation needs of many medical device enterprises downstream of the industry chain and finally selected the right person to connect with the hospital.
Abroad, too, it follows a conversion path from university-university results conversion agency-market results conversion agency-company. Faraj says that Israeli universities have a wholly owned technology conversion company under their umbrella, in which the research results of university professors are displayed like commodities, and their customers are often venture capitalists in the marketplace.
In such an innovation network, why even come to the negotiating table when professors can participate in the transfer of results as long as they keep generating new research.

China's pivotal role in global technology transfer network

Yesterday's Global Technology Transfer Conference was a truly worldwide carnival of science and technology, with experts from the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Israel, Canada and others in attendance. There was also a ceremony to inaugurate the French branch of the Eastern National Center for Technology Transfer, so why are foreigners so interested in this conference?
"The last hurdle to technology transfer is marketization, and China has a huge market, and China itself is an incubator for creating new technologies." Liu Yanguang said the key to this.
Yesterday's conference also selected Shanghai's top ten new technology transfer institutions, as the "head" of Shanghai's old science and technology achievements transformation service institutions, Liu Yan Gang exclaimed: "How are all new faces?".
More new faces because the Shanghai government "fertilizes more". In recent years, Shanghai has vigorously supported the science and technology service industry, according to the 2018 Shanghai Science and Technology Center Index Survey Report, the added value of Shanghai's science and technology service industry reached 395.2 billion yuan last year, an increase of 13.71 TP1T over 2016, accounting for 191 TP1T of the city's added value of the service industry, and the support of the science and technology service industry for technological innovation and industrial development has been shown.
For the future, Shanghai Technology Transfer Agency is full of confidence. Yu Xiaojing said that Shanghai Rongzhi was established five years since the enterprise development momentum is good, especially the Yangtze River Delta regional integration development has given the company great business opportunities. At the moment, they are doing the Yangtze River Delta transfer of the aerospace industry.
