VIB Tech Transfer Course
Do you want to know how scientific inventions are turned into real life medicines, products and agricultural innovations? Are you interested in how patents serve to protect your invention? Or do you simply want to get a taste of the life science industry surrounding your lab? Join VIB’s Innovation & Business team in our annual Technology transfer course!
After all, VIB has an entrepreneurial side. We seek to transfer the results of our scientific research to economical and societal added value. To this end, the members of VIB’s Innovation & Business team draft, file and prosecute patents, develop IP strategies, establish research collaborations with companies, outlicense intellectual property & knowhow, and create spin-off companies. These activities resulted in more than 250 active patent families, 1500 partnerships with industry, more than 130 million euro industrial income over the last 5 years, and a total of 29 spin-off companies. The portfolio of VIB Discovery Sciences - part of the VIB Business & Innovation team - includes programs on small molecules, biologicals, crop industry as well as microbiology programs.
