The Technology Transfer Office

The main tasks of the TTO include the work at the interfaces between:

At the beginning of the innovation chain, the Technology Ttransfer Office (TTO) supports the finding of inventions or innovative ideas through, e.g., technology screenings or inventor workshops. Inventions are subsequently rated and potentially patented by the TTO. For AWI IP, software developments and commercially interesting services suitable commercialization strategies are developped and marketed through business networks or dedicated business development efforts.

Regularly, inventions from fundamental research projects are not market-ready, if this is the case, the TTO supports in setting up projects for the validation or prototyping of technologies.  

Additionally, the the team of the TTO is the point of contact for requests from the industry, e.g. with respect to co-operation projects, contract research or the development of tailor-made solutions.
