About the Top 500 Poland Programme:
The Top 500 Innovators Science-Management Commercialisation Programme was created by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Republic of Poland to help bridge the gap between academia and business in Poland. In the course of the Program selected individuals complete a 9 week academic program taught at partnering universities from the Academic Ranking of World Universities, in this case Cambridge University and the University of Oxford. The courses provide the participants from Polish universities, research institutes, as well as technology transfer offices, with skills needed to manage cooperative research projects and bring high-technology products to the market. During the program, its participants also have the opportunity to visit key technology companies from a variety of areas (including energy, biotechnology, information technology and technology transfer) in order to obtain a broad understanding of how companies have taken intellectual property and changed the landscape of various industries. The curriculum’s focus is on innovation, execution and leadership, entrepreneurship, intellectual property and technology transfer. The programme places emphasis on active learning methods, and courses developing soft skills in the field of:
1) scientific research management and scientific/research team management;
2) practical aspects of commercialisation of research results;
3) cooperation between science and economy.
The participants of the Top 500 Innovators Science-Management Commercialisation Programme will be split between Cambridge University, hosted by Cambridge Enterprise, and the University of Oxford, through Isis Innovation. The delegates will spend the first two weeks in Cambridge, followed by weeks three to five in Oxford, and finally weeks six through nine at Cambridge.
