The University of Nottingham released its annual spin-out report in March 2021. It details the University’s involvement in developing a portfolio of innovative businesses. There is no doubt that academic entrepreneurship can bring to the market life enhancing products and services that improve society. Just think of the academic involvement in providing a new generation of vaccines to humanity as a result of this pandemic, and the key role academic and business partnership has played in this vital process.

But why do we mention this subject in an EventMAP news item?

Well, the University of Nottingham has a place in our heart. As we have repeatedly mentioned, and as indicated in this report, EventMAP was borne out of a collaboration between academics at both the University of Nottingham and Queens University Belfast.

A quick search of the University of Nottingham, Technology Ventures website will highlight the birth of EventMAP.

We are very proud of our continued association with leading universities in our field of expertise. As we continue to bring our disruptive optimisation solutions based on the Optime platform to resource and asset managers around the globe.

Yes, as we continue to work with timetablers, room, and accommodation booking managers, as they develop teaching curriculum in an ever-changing environment, and manage their training, accommodation, and office spaces to best effect. As we use our complex modelling and planning tools to help architects plan new builds and projects to remodel existing teaching and workspaces. As we assist facilities and estate managers entrusted with return-to-work projects in offices, teaching, and other workspaces.

Yes, as we continue to share our algorithms with industry to improve their manufacturing and scheduled processes. We persist in highlighting the invaluable role that universities played in the birth of our company, and, will continue to play in the economic recovery here in the UK and abroad, as academic entrepreneurship continues to develop and bring these disruptive technologies to market, to the benefit of wider society and mankind more generally.
