Sean Fielding: University of Exeter

Sean Fielding was, until a couple of weeks ago, the director of innovation, impact and business at University of Exeter, where he built the tech transfer office from scratch in the mid-90s. He joins us on Talking Tech Transfer to discuss how the requirement to generate impact has changed the way universities think about research and his dream of having tech transfer professionals be as celebrated as rockstars.

He also talks about his experience of chairing PraxisAuril, the importance of SETsquared for Exeter’s ecosystem and his views of the European ecosystem. This interview was recorded before Sean moved into his new job, which is still with Exeter: he has joined the senior executive to implement programmes linked to its 2030 strategy.
