Developing and Deploying Agri-Food and Climate Tech Innovations: The Role of Technology Transfer

Distinguished experts and guests will gather in Rome on October 16 to discuss partnership mechanisms as a means of creating thriving entrepreneurial ecosystems that support the development and deployment of agri-food tech innovations, empower young talent, attract investments, enhance business competitiveness, and drive development.

Research and development (R&D) is the engine of sustainable growth and economic development. While the effective use and commercialization of knowledge and intellectual assets fuel value creation in addressing complex challenges, the journey from innovation to impact is often hindered by a critical bottleneck—inadequate technology transfer mechanisms. 

Robust tech transfer and entrepreneurial mechanisms for venture building can guide the scaling process, bridge labs to markets, connect collaborators for open innovation, manage intellectual property, source opportunities to scale including investments, reduce the impact of brain drain from emerging economies, and more. Effective mechanisms will ensure that research and development actors can derive optimal value and impact from innovations, both equitably and sustainably. This will undoubtedly require a concerted level of international cooperation, in policy engagement and diplomacy, as we move forward through an ever-evolving and increasingly digital world. 

To facilitate a disruptive and energizing exchange of knowledge on this topic, CGIAR Accelerate for Impact Platform (A4IP), European Centre for Development Policy Management, and LVenture Group are co-organising a high-level event entitled “Developing and Deploying Agri-Food and Climate Tech Innovations: The Role of Technology Transfer”. 

Join us and a line-up of eminent speakers on Monday 16 October 2023, 15:00-18:00, to contribute to the dialogue.
