International Technology Cooperation

Research and development activities may result in new technology, a prototype, patent, process, software or more. It’s important to select the right way to market such results so that the efforts and funds you expended on R&D return to you. This is often connected with identifying suitable partners for commercialisation.

Companies often do not have enough of their own funds and capacity to carry out research. For them it is better to buy or acquire the rights to use new technology. Here, too, we can help and connect you with the right partners.
