The Serious Transfer Game - an interactive board game

"Seriously! - Now what?"

The Serious Transfer Game is a very recent addition to our Transfer School. It has been developed together with the House of Knowledge and financed by the BUA-Postdoc Academy.

In a serious game, participants experience complex situations and find solutions in a playful manner. In our Serious Transfer Game, intended for postdocs from all research areas, participants will be exposed to manyfold challenges and opportunities related to creating value from their research results. Learning takes place through facilitated discussion within their interdisciplinary teams, by "living through" real situations and finding solutions to each new challenge. There is no right or wrong in this game approach; learning is linked to every decision! 

The game is based on an imaginary case, you do not need to bring your own project.

In the game, you will gain...

  • an introduction to technology transfer,

  • insights into the added value offered by technology transfer, for your project as well as your career development,

  • insights into how research results can be applied,

  • an understanding of challenges in technology transfer and of strategies to overcome them,

  • an understanding of how to identify success factors and optimal process chains in technology transfer,

  • peer to peer learning through working in interdisciplinary teams,

  • the opportunity to networking with new colleagues.
