Presentation Overview

There exist two major innovation gaps. One is the gap between engineering R&D and innovation management. It caused MIT to start the Management of Technology (MOT) education programme in the 80s and it has spread globally with more than 200 programmes offered in 2012. However, MOT education in engineering schools is still much lagging in Asia including Singapore. The experience of the National University of Singapore in MOT education will be presented in this seminar. The second innovation gap is techno-entrepreneurship. This is especially serious in research-intensive universities and public research institutes which have invested heavily in research, but a large number of the resultant patents remain un-utilized. In the brand new Institute for Engineering Leadership in the National University of Singapore, two new action-learning education initiatives have been launched to introduce relevant project-based entrepreneurship education for engineering professors and research students. One is from Technology to Market, while the other is from "Emerging" Market to Technology. These two initiatives will be presented and the initial positive experiences gained will be shared in this seminar.
