This session focuses on how operational knowledge on TT can be coupled with academic research to assist in the improving of policy measures. Subtopics include evolution in IP-based business models, benchmarking efforts, the need for capacity building, and internationalisation.
The central thesis of the session is that well-designed cross-disciplinary research can help unravel TT intricacies, and that results can subsequently be conveyed to the policy making/implementing level in the form of well-argued recommendations.
