From bench to patient/consumer: the journey of your invention

VIB’s Innovation & Business team guides research valorization to create economic value. They have built up a sound expertise in intellectual property management, business development and new ventures over the last 25 years. To create more awareness on technology transfer opportunities and possibilities to valorize scientific results among the VIB researchers, the team has created this e-learning which opens up the basics of technology transfer and explains the process of valorization, as well as how your research projects may lead to research collaborations, patents and licenses or a spin-off company. 


Next to a general introduction on technology transfer relevant for every researcher, this e-learning specifically aims to offer VIB researchers a compact guide to pinpoint potential inventions and commercially interesting results eligible for innovation and business cases.  


Presentations guiding the audience through the different avenues of bringing a fundamental research result to an economically valuable asset.
