Science and business. Where to look for the recipe for cooperation?
The Gdańsk Medical University has many supporting structures. Today we present another of them. It will certainly be of interest to scientists whose activities are related to the business sector.
The Technology Transfer Office focuses on supporting the University staff in the transfer of knowledge and scientific achievements and their promotion in the economic sector. The Technology Transfer Office also assists in the commercialization of research results. These tasks are carried out through: comprehensive management of intellectual property, including the identification of innovative solutions arising at the University, protection of intellectual property in cooperation with a patent attorney, identification of business partners interested in cooperation, as well as building a network of contacts with industry.
