Team TT 2016.jpg
The technology transfer team supports you with additional information and with its advice. It acts as link between a potential interested company and the corresponding scientist at PSI. For the industrial partner the technology transfer office represents the first point of contact and the facilitator to the research at PSI. In-house it supports the parties involved in contractual and administrative matters, and manages the intellectual property rights. If necessary, the technology transfer office advises and supports scientists in commercially exploiting their inventions and results in spin-off companies.
