UZH for Researchers

Technology Transfer

UZH will give you active support with translating the results of your research into products and services, and establishing spin-offs.

Have you come up with a discovery or invention and are thinking of making a patent application? Are you looking to commercialize the results of your research via a license agreement? Are you planning to establish your own spin-off to bring a new product - based on UZH technology - to market? Or are you negotiating research collaborations and material transfer agreements (MTAs)? This is supported by Unitectra, the technology transfer organisation of the Universities of Basel, Bern and Zurich:

Therapy Development Accelerator (TDA)

The Therapy Development Accelerator supports researchers who have an idea for a future therapy or diagnostic tool in project management and business development. TDA projects usually already have a patent protecting their idea.
