Overview:
As part of the Postdoctoral Academy’s “Show Me The Money” series, Dr Cullen will present on new activities at NSi that support UNSW researchers.  He will also provide guidance on Easy Access IP as he was the leader in launching this initiative.
Dr Cullen was appointed CEO of New South Innovations at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) Sydney in August 2011. He is responsible for developing the UNSW model for knowledge exchange and commercialisation, with particular emphasis on supporting the translation of the university’s excellent research outputs into use by society. Dr Cullen has more recently developed new approaches to improve knowledge exchange to benefit the economy and society. He is well known as the architect of the Knowledge Transfer Metrics system used for the assessment of Knowledge and Technology Transfer performance of UK universities. Most recently Kevin led the launch of the Easy Access IP initiative, designed to significantly increase the flow of knowledge from the university into the economy and society.
Prior to joining the university sector Kevin worked for Procter & Gamble in the UK and Belgium, in the fields of technical brand management, product development, and technology development, covering Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East. He has acted as an external expert and consultant in a number of international projects, particularly focused on knowledge transfer. His qualifications include a PhD in physical-organic chemistry from the University of Edinburgh.
Event Background:
The Postdoctoral/Early Career Researcher Academy Program commenced in 2011 as a professional development and education opportunity for postdoctoral and research fellows. This program is an opportunity for researchers to meet their contemporaries in fields from across the University and build professional networks. The program consists of monthly seminar & discussion style workshops focussing on a key topic and will be delivered by high level speakers with the tertiary and industry sectors who are leaders their field. A social function will follow at the end of each session for networking opportunities.
We strongly encourage Postdocs, Early Career Researchers and Research Fellows in your Faculty to participate and look forward to seeing you.
