Universities roll out Technology Commercialisation Course in the Western Cape 1 SA Study University, FET and Bursary Information South Africa

By Candice Keating

In a bid to fuel innovative activities in the province, the four universities in the Western Cape have joined forces and expertise to offer a course in Technology Commercialisation.

The course is aimed at students, researchers and other individuals interested in taking their ideas and turning it into sellable products or services.

This ambitious joint venture is earmarked to become a permanent feature on the universities’ calendars, says CPUT’s Prof Gary Atkinson-Hope, Director of Technology Transfer and Industrial Linkages.  The course has received a stamp of approval from the Technology Innovation Agency, a body established by government to stimulate technological innovation in order to improve economic growth.

Hope says the course, which will run over four weeks, will be presented by the country’s top experts in the technology and innovation fields. The course will cover patenting and licensing technologies, industry and market research and provide steps on how to put together a full-proof business plan.

The first session will be presented at CPUT on Tuesday 23 July, with follow-up sessions taking place at the University of the Western Cape, University of Cape Town and Stellenbosch University.
