VUB partner in ETTBio: Effective Technology Transfer in Biotechnology

Seven European regions are launching the ETTBio project, which aims to identify, exchange and transmit best practices for Effective Technology Transfer in Biotechnology in order to improve local and regional policies. This collective effort to improve transfer policies will help boost the creation of new companies, generate new jobs and lead to higher turnover, as well as increasing regional innovation and economic development.

The Vrije Universiteit Brussel is one of the ten partners in the project and is represented by the team “Technological Entrepreneurship” of the department of Business. Lead partner of ETTBio is the Dresden University of Technology.

ETTBio, which has a budget of more than €2 millions for the 2012-2014 period, is one of the top priorities for the EU Innovation and Knowledge Economy program, as it contributes directly to the competitiveness of the region by fostering companies that can better take advantage of the innovative potential of universities and research institutes in order to develop new products and services. And, as a result, will help improve policies and instruments to boost the economic development of participating regions.
