2020 Swiss annual Technology Transfer report
The 2020 Swiss annual Technology Transfer report has recently been released by swiTT, the Swiss Association of Technology Transfer.
The annual swiTT report is the most comprehensive analysis of the technology transfer activities of Swiss public research organisations (“PROs”). The Swiss public research institutions interact very actively with partners in the economy. These activities are collectively designated in the report as “technology transfer” (TT) activities.
The report covers two main areas :
a) research collaborations of the participating institutions with private or public partners, and
b) the activities for the economic exploitation of research results from these institutions.
The report highlights the impact of technology transfer activities on society through Case studies. With regard to scientific disciplines, the report mainly focuses on the areas of life sciences, natural sciences and engineering sciences.22 février 2021
