The people working at CERN possess unique knowledge and skills, and cutting-edge technologies are continuously developed at the Laboratory. These may have great potential outside of CERN, and innovations developed might have potential to disrupt whole industries. However, this does not happen all by itself, and sometimes it can be good to get support in the process of commercialisation. The CERN Knowledge Transfer group has knowledge and experience about the different aspects of taking new innovations to the market, and will help you understand the potential of your innovative technology, assist you through any stage of the technology transfer with a tailored strategy, and support your work with dedicated funds and incentives. More specifically we offer assistance to inventors at CERN with:
- Market assessment
- Patentability studies
- Technology disclosure
- Contract negotiation
- Financial support
- Assistance in spin-off creation
