BDC's Very Successful Technology Transfer Operations at the University of Basel in 2007

30.05.2008 - BDC is pleased to look back on its 10th business year in operating the Technology Transfer Office of the University of Basel, the University Hospital of Basel and the University of Applied Sciences of Norhtwestern Switzerland.

In 2007, twenty invention disclosures were submitted by University members, of which nine survived the patentability and marketability assessment process and were subsequently filed as priority patent applications. Although sound technology/invention assessments come along with considerable investments of time and efforts, negotiations of arrangements and deals with third parties by far ranked top within the overall project portfolio. As in 2006, more than 300 contracts with a volume of over 100 Mio. Swiss Francs were reviewed and negotiated to secure University policies, interests and rights.
