Head of knowledge transfer


Technology transfer is the process of transferring knowledge in order to turn it into a product, procedure or provision of a service. There are two different players in the technology transfer process: on the one hand, the knowledge producer (which contributes scientific knowledge and/or the technology) and, on the other hand, the recipient, which receives the technology and uses it in the market. The person responsible for technology transfer markets the knowledge generated at their entity (university, hospital, research entity or company), either through licences or the creation of technologically-based companies. They are responsible for turning the generated knowledge into value, which means transforming this knowledge into products and services for the market.
