On 1st July, Innovation Forum KCL hosted the Future of Science Innovation: building collaborations between academia, start-ups and industry at Bush House, The Strand. This event brought together start-up founders, academics, corporates and policymakers to discuss how start-up-industry collaborations can be successfully initiated and maintained to drive innovation.
The event commenced with a panel discussion, followed an audience Q&A, interviews with panelists and networking. We were delighted to have expert panelists: Prof Stefan Allesch-Taylor CBE, serial entrepreneur; Prof Jackie Hunter CBE, CEO of Benevolent Bio; Dr Duncan Young, Associate Director at Scientific Partnering and Alliances at AstraZeneca; and Dr Jim Totty, Managing Partner at STIL.
