Akademia og industri er gjensidig avhengig av hverandre for å at ideer med utspring i grunnforskning skal tas videre til produkt. Gjennom innovasjonsprogrammet SPARK Norway som er etablert ved UiO, tar vi ut det beste fra begge sider for å bidra til økt verdiskaping innen livsvitenskap. Hvilke gap fyller SPARK-programmet? Og er dette modell som bør spres til hele Norge?
