The Faculty of Agronomy in Gembloux, Belgium, has long been an independent institute. Recognized as a major Center for Excellence in Life Science and Biological Engineering in the country, it was integrated to the University of Liège (ULiège) in 2009. Due to its autonomous culture and its off-centered location, there is a continuous need for the ULiège KTO (Knowledge Transfer Office) to organize dedicated sessions of training for the researchers of this Faculty.
On the 10th of March, such a seminar was held by the Knowledge Transfer Officers entitled: “Towards Innovation: Protection and Transfer of Technology”. The topics of Intellectual Property, Collaboration between University and Industry, Technology Licensing, and Entrepreneurship were presented. During this one-day training, particular attention was dedicated to the presentation of the BOSS platform, to encourage the researchers to browse the educational material provided and to test the tools with regards to their projects.
