full name / name of organization:
International Conference on Innovation through Knowledge Transfer 2014
For some years, interaction between universities and business has taken second place in importance behind the REF and the employability agenda.
InnovationKT 2014 will explore how universities can take advantage of improvements in the UK economy and the steer given by Sir Andrew Witty in his recent review, to revitalise the third mission.
InnovationKT wil be of interest to all knowledge professionals - those academics, business people, managers and researchers working with innovation, enterprise, knowledge transfer, exchange and sharing.

The conference proceedings, containing Full and Short papers, will be published in the open access journal "InImpact: The Journal of Innovation Impact", ISSN 2051-6002, and in book-form "Innovation through Knowledge Transfer", published in the KES Transactions series.
