Innovation is no longer a choice for companies, but an important condition in order to survive in a free market economy.
So, when research at Hasselt University evolves into a new idea with high market potential, the Tech Transfer Office (TTO) bridges the gap between research and the industry by looking into ways to protect the research results and assisting with the commercialization.
The Tech Transfer Office and Doctoral Schools therefor organize an introduction to technology transfer.
During your academic career, many questions will come to mind regarding your research: Who owns the rights on my research results? What can be done to protect these results? How can I collaborate with industry or other partners? When do I contact the Tech Transfer Office? Can I start my own company (spin-off) based on my research?
The TTO will immerse you into the world of technology transfer during this 1,5 hrs session.Meer info
