“Science is the business of tomorrow" game to celebrate the 15th anniversary of CITT
The team of the Centre for Incubation and Technology Transfer of the Silesian University of Technology has developed a board game "Science is the business of tomorrow". The game was created to celebrate the 15th anniversary of CITT. Its aim is to present the activities of the Centre, whose role is to connect the world of science and business.
The game consists of a board, pawns, special cards and CITtons, which act as the game's currency. The player takes on the role of a scientist from the Silesian University of Technology and learns what stages accompany the technology implementation process.
– Technology transfer at the University plays an increasingly important role. In recent years, universities have been carrying out intensive activities aimed at creating an environment offering technological support for scientists - says Dr Eng. Magdalena Letun-Łątka, director of the Centre for Incubation and Technology Transfer of the Silesian University of Technology.
The game allows you to understand the steps taken related to technology transfer, thus encouraging you to find the optimal path from university to business. –- Board games are an effective method of transmitting knowledge. They engage players' attention and most often evoke positive associations. They also require acting according to established rules and principles. The game created by CITT has an educational dimension. Its purpose is to familiarize players with the process of commercializing research results at the Silesian University of Technology - adds Dr Eng. Magdalena Letun-Łątka.
The game is intended for all people over 12 years of age and can be played by two to five players.
