NIPMO, Kim and Innovation Bridge Portal Workshops

A series of workshops were help with members of the offices of technology transfer (OTTs) across the country to provide an insight into the NIPMO Knowledge Information Management (KIM) System. This system is designed to streamline all interactions between the stakeholder community and NIPMO and to further enhance NIPMOs internal effectivity. The workshop, primarily with a training and change management focus, took the members of the OTTs through the functioning of the system in a step-by-step fashion. In addition, the Innovation Bridge Portal was demonstrated to all attendees. The Innovation Bridge Portal is an “online platform that aims to create linkages and networks between regional, national and international innovators, industry and public and private technology development, and commercialisation funding partners. It is an online technology matchmaking platform for researchers, innovators, technology developers, and entrepreneurs, to present their technology innovation offerings, and funders and technology users to present challenges that can be addressed”.
