Recently, a paper by Lotte Steuten was published in ‘OMICS: A Journal of Integrative Biology’. This paper is a result of a Panaxea project, to promote the need for institutional innovation to cultivate translational research.
According to Dr Steuten:
Lessons learned from this study may inform future innovation impact assessments by Technology Transfer Offices (TTOs) and translational research centers designed to accelerate knowledge-based innovation around the globe in North America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia
The views of Editor-in Chief of OMICS, Vural Özdemir:
We truly need new 21st century institutions, creative organizational designs, and independent think tanks that can broadly frame and measure innovation and technology transfer impacts in society. This study by Prof. Steuten makes an important contribution to translational science and the emerging field of innovation governance.
