The results of the scientific research performed at SISSA are also applied to a wide range of activities and sectors. For this reason SISSA promotes and enhances business areas (spin-off) to apply scientific innovation to the industry.
The process of technology transfer is carried out through spin-off companies. The procedures are regulated by the Statute of the School (art.29) and by the Regulations for the constitution of Spin-off companies of SISSA.
SISSA Spin-off companies:
