IIT research results are to a large extent public property which should be applied for society's use and benefit. Applying knowledge and technologies to the society includes transferring them to industry in order to increase IIT contribution to the Innovation process while generating income to support research and reward inventors.
Technology Transfer is aimed at helping bringing knowledge from research to the market. It includes protection of new technologies by means of patents and copyright, as well as the strategic licensing of IIT Intellectual Property. It also supports creation of Spin Off companies, which may originate from a worthy combination of the cutting-edge knowledge and the entrepreneurial spirit of some of IIT researchers.
Moreover, Technology Transfer provides support to negotiate and to define deals with industries for carrying out R&D and competitive industrial research.
Finally, IIT Technology Transfer includes dissemination and training activities towards the scientific community as well as research and networking with other Research Organizations to improve our knowledge and our effectiveness in transferring technologies.
