Knowledge and Technology Transfer (KTT) to the chemical, pharmaceutical and energy industrial sectors is at the core of ICIQ’s mission. We have developed and set up several strategies and approaches to maximize the transfer of knowledge and technology from institute to companies.
Knowledge and Technology Transfer, and Industrial Projects Department, valorises industrially relevant inventions from the institute’s research to a stage where they can be licensed to a company or a spin-off, and also pursues contract research projects between companies and ICIQ’s research groups. Moreover, the area includes other collaborations with industry offering them equipped laboratories with Joint Units, or innovation and technology services by three different and specialized units: Innovation & Valorisation Laboratory, Crysforma (solid state services) and Medicinal Chemistry. In addition, companies also can have access to ICIQ’s Core Facilities Area, an extensive range of analytical services.
