The Technology Transfer Toolbox
Welcome to the tech transfer toolbox, the digital platform for capacity building in technology transfer
Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime (as long as he also has a good fishing pole, it is close to a good spot to fish, it is a good day to fish and ...).
This is how we summarize our mission. Capacity building is beyond training, as people move around, in and out organizations, and change professional identities several times in their life. The performance of a technology transfer organization cannot rely exclusively on human resources, skills and competences. It needs processes, tools: durable and sustainable elements that go beyond the presence of single professionals and become the real asset of any technology transfer organization, whether public or private, large or small, older or brand new.
“[…] every business decision involving intellectual property assets is ultimately a legal decision, and […] every legal decision is at bottom a business decision. If intellectual property is economically too important to be left to lawyers, it is also too legally charged to be left to managers”.
