Innovation is no longer a choice for companies, but a major requirement for survival in a free market economy. Hasselt University and the Limburg academies have undertaken the role of catalyst in this context. As well as training people, knowledge institutions are in a unique position to bridge the gap between research and the corporate world.
This is why the Tech Transfer Office (TTO) was founded in 2007. Its purpose is to encourage Limburg researchers and give them guidance as they make the transition to the corporate world, as well as to help entrepreneurs to engage with knowledge institutions. Effective knowledge and technology transfer of this kind ensures that research results and new developments are put on the market. We are more and more convinced that we play a key role by guiding researchers and entrepreneurs within our innovation network.
