Quality Management Systems can play an important role in enabling innovation. They can provide a framework for project planning and information management; and ensure that the translation of research can occur seamlessly from Universities to Industry partners.
UCT Research Contracts and Innovation (www.rci.uct.ac.za) have joined forces with MeDDIC (http://meddic.samrc.ac.za/index.html ) to bring you this informative webinar.
The Webinar aims to introduce the benefits of establishing a QMS framework at the invention development and validation stages to aid the innovation management and commercialization of research outputs.
Join the CSIR team: Kahesh Dhuness, Jeremy Wallis and Mark Bodley; and Saberi Marais from RC&I in this informative webinar.
