Technology transfer as a core task
Technology transfer is understood by SVH as an iterative process in which technological innovations from an academic research origin are in close cooperation with companies, public institutions and society and are made accessible to them. We accompany this process and support you with our specialized staff and our network of experts and partners.
The transfer of research results requires specialized personnel with scientific and industrial experience to successfully bring the technologies into application or to market maturity. For this purpose, our experts specially trained in the field of intellectual property and natural sciences are at your disposal. You can contact us at any time with any questions along the innovation process or in the area of technology transfer!
ScienceValue Heidelberg GmbH sees the greatest benefit in the exploitation of research results not for itself, but clearly in an overall economic context, in which a network is created from which the entire location can benefit. Consequently, the aim is to create an all-encompassing ecosystem that fertilizes new innovations and strengthens the region so that research results can be efficiently developed into market-ready products, as a result of which products are made available to society from which it can profit. To achieve this goal, SVH works together with a strong network of innovation supporters from the region in order to combine synergies in the best possible way and to set new impulses.
