Midlands Innovation Commercialisation of Research Accelerator Launch

This was an interesting launch of  MICRA. 

You’ll be able to see from the link, that 8 Universities have come together with Research England to harness the emerging technology and give it the push its’ needed towards commercialisation

It was interesting, I did wonder whether the scheme/ Universities will be able to resource the transition processes. Noting that these are prime research bodies, they don’t by definition, have the experience of commercialisation of innovation (generally) .

Its one thing developing Tech its another skill set that is needed to bring the Customer expectation though to the research teams.

It will be interesting to see how this is handled.
