AEIP webinar | Why Intellectual Property matters, from African tech hub perspective

We are very happy to invite you to an on-line conversation organised in the framework of AEIP with Laura Macdonald, Chief Executive of the ASTP knowledge transfer network. The event will take place next Thursday March 25th at 10h00 Paris time.

ASTP is Europe's premier association of knowledge transfer professionals, with an expanding International membership base including Africa. ASTP's mission is the promotion and professionalisation of knowledge transfer practice and practitioners, in light of increasing the attraction and credibility of the profession and improving the impact that public research has on the economy and society. It operates as a non-profit member’s organisation committed to knowledge transfer among universities and industry. As part of its activities, ASTP:  

              • Trains KT professionals and help sustain their professional development

              • Offers internationally recognised professional accreditation

              • Produces international networking events

              • Increases the efficiency of the European innovation system

              • Advocates for the profession on the international stage

              • Gives a platform to members’ ideas through Special Interest Groups


At AEIP, we very much value the work conducted by ASTP and would like to invite you as an African knowledge transfer professional, to hear about what ASTP does and the opportunities joining the network may offer you. We believe that promoting access to the ASTP can help further pursue our goal of bridging the African and European knowledge transfer communities. During the conversation, Laura will take us through the range of activities delivered by ASTP, and the value for knowledge transfer professionals in collaborating through the network approach. In addition, we will be hearing from one or two of ASTPs African members about their experience working with the network. Last but not least, participants who express interest will be offered the possibility to obtain a temporary digital membership to ASTP platform free of cost.
