Combining knowledge in life science
Taran Thune and Magnus Gulbrandsen from the OSIRIS team have published an article in the European Journal of Innovation Management on the idea generation process in life science. Based on a data set of disclosed inventions to the technology transfer office Inven2, it is found that combined knowledge from basic research and clinical settings seems particularly important for life science invention. Such combinations appear in different ways. The article can be found here.
Disclosure of ideas through formal channels is one out of several pathways from research to impact, and the article is therefore at the very core of the OSIRIS work. It is the first scientific article from OSIRIS (although the data and first analysis naturally predate the centre).
