Technology Transfer


Transfer of the results of scientific research to society and to the business sector is one of the institutional tasks carried out by SISSA.

SISSA promotes and organises research (even applied research) by favouring protection of intellectual property and economic valorisation of research results. Constant communication between researchers and the industry is a necessary condition for a successful process of technology transfer. SISSA aims at favouring collaboration with the business sector through research tasks, consulting, know-how transfer and conveyance or partnerships for joint innovation activities.

The Technology Transfer Commission evaluates technology transfer initiatives and activities according to the rules of the School concerning spin-off, intellectual property protection, as well as contracts and conventions – on behalf of a third party – for research activities, consulting, education and transfer of research results.

The Commission is composed of the Chairman, the Vice-Chairman, the Secretary-General, the Manager of General Affairs Office and a representative for each scientific area at SISSA.
