The prime focus of this presentation will be based on a case study involving fundamental research to develop novel fabrics for a specific application. This presentation will also focus on how an invention could be utilised in multiple applications (innovation) through strategic collaborations and critically using a design/technology interface. The role of designers and design thinking will be discussed in light of practical challenges in cutting-edge applied material research and mitigation. This would lead to discussions on research funding, IP, and models for generating and managing revenue from various streams of research in a University context.
