Technology brokerage

Technology transfer includes a range of activities, downstream of scientific and technological research, targeting the transfer of research results to enterprises. This apparently simple process is actually quite complex, and must be conducted on two fronts: raising the companies’ awareness of the need to establish closer links with research and academic institutions, and encouraging universities and research institutions to spread their research developments and generate benefits for the local economy.

To promote technology transfer, Sardegna Ricerche is involved in Enterprise Europe Network through ELSE Consortium, which groups 8 partners from two Italian regions (Lazio and Sardinia) and provides assistance and support to companies and research centres for the spread and transfer of new technologies and the results of European research. Through Enterprise Europe Network (EEN), Sardegna Ricerche delivers the following services:

- visits and audits to assess enterprises’ innovation potential and requirements
- technology brokerage through European networks
- assistance in early-stage negotiation of technology transfer agreements
- organisation of technology transfer info days and thematic seminars
- support for participation in brokerage events and technology transfer days organised in collaboration with European partners.
