One way of accelerating the process described above is to create a structure for a research project that enables many ideas to be worked on at the same time, that actively promotes a close collaboration and exchange between researchers and industrial end-users from the outset, and one where technology delivery issues are considered early and in parallel with technology generation. A practical example of implementation of such an innovative approach is represented by the UNIHEAT project which focused on improving energy efficiency in oil refining and brought together one of the largest multidisciplinary teams in the area worldwide comprising 8 academics from Imperial College London and 5 distinguished researchers from the Boreskov Institute of Catalysis in Novosibirsk, Russia with funding from the Skolkovo Foundation and BP. The success stories of this innovative technology transfer model are discussed in this presentation.
