Innovation & Industry Collaboration
Innovation & Industry Collaboration is a department in the Central Administration. The department works to strengthen innovation and entrepreneurship in research and education at the university, and to forge strong ties to the rest of society.
The department covers the Tech Transfer Office, the Innovationcentre Lighthouse and the secretariat for Copenhagen Science City.
The Tech Transfer Office is responsible for ensuring that society benefits as best as possible from inventions made at University of Copenhagen (UCPH). As a result, the Tech Transfer Office is responsible for:
- ensuring optimal conditions for collaborations between the University and external partners, including negotiating all agreements relating to the University’s IPR (Intellectual Property Rights)
- protecting and handling UCPH’s IPR
- assessing the commercial potential of research results;
- commercialising research results.
UCPH Lighthouse works to strengthen the interdisciplinary innovation across the University. The Innovation Centre helps to ensure that the university's knowledge is used for the benefit of people, society, and the environment.
The Office for Copenhagen Science City is placed in Research & Innovation. The office is responsible for the operation and development of the network organization for knowledge institutions, innovation hubs and businesses situated in the area surrounding Universitetsparken in Copenhagen. The area is a significant innovation district in Greater Copenhagen.
The office and the network organization works to utilise the joint strengths to improve innovation capacity, attract businesses and create jobs and urban development in nearby neighbourhoods.
The tasks are solved in close collaboration between the City of Copenhagen, Capital Region of Denmark, Rigshospitalet, University College Copenhagen, University of Copenhagen and the innovation houses COBIS, Symbion and SingularityU Nordic.
Copenhagen Science City consists of a series of governing bodies, including a steering committee, a secretariat and working groups for communication and urban spaces.
