5-day skills development course for the Technology transfer  and Innovation Support Proffessions, 15.-19. September 2008, Scuola Internazionale di Alta Formazione – SIAF, Volterra, Italija

5-day skills development course for the Technology transfer and Innovation Support Proffessions will be held at the Scuola Internazionale de Alta Formazione in Volterra for TII's 2008 summer school. Since it was inaugurated 8 years ago, the TII summer school has been offering high quality, practical training to technology transfer and innovation support practitioners, in a relaxed, multi-cultural learning environment. The topics covered in this year's programme include:

- creative problem-solving techniques

- managing the innovation process from idea to business creation

- making the business case for technology opportunities

- early-stage financing and investor readiness

- international project management techniques

A full programme and an on-line registration facility may be found at the following link: http://www.tii.org/2008_SummerSchool

The training sessions are brought to you by seasoned practitioners from five different countries - the Netherlands, Switzerland, Denmark, Italy and Belgium - and will consist of a balanced mix of methodological presentations and case study/practical work in groups. The course is suitable for staff carrying out an innovation-support or technology transfer function who may be new to the profession, and for experienced professionals who wish to acquire a new technique or methodology. In either case, the tuition and materials are intended to have an immediate impact on the quality of delivery of participants' everyday work assignments. Participants may register for all or part of the five-day course (see Practical Details page of the programme) and half-board executive accommodation may be booked on the SIAF campus. Places on the course are limited to 25 so we encourage you to book early to avoid disappointment.
