Technology transfer is the process of transferring knowledge from a scientific unit to an entity that is willing to apply it to business practice.
Technology transfer is made possible, among other things, by units that support contacts between science and business. At the Medical University of Gdansk, this function is performed by the Technology Transfer Office (TTO), which acts as an intermediary between science and research and business. The TTO’s mission is to support academics in the commercialisation of research results through licensing or selling rights to external entities, and in the creation of spin-off and spin-out companies.
The active efforts of both the Technology Transfer Office and the special purpose vehicle, the Centrum Innowacji Medycznych, in attracting external funding from national and international sources allow the technological readiness of solutions developed by researchers to be increased.
Technologies developed at the university are widely presented by innovation brokers at national and international trade fairs. The current technological offer of the Medical University of Gdańsk is also available under the for business tab.
The university’s cooperation with the business environment also includes jointly commissioned R&D work, research and service work and expert opinions.
