Innovation @ UNIFR
UNIFR researchers collaborate with academia and industry and are successful in applying for innovation funds, like the Swiss Innovation Agency Innosuisse, the BRIDGE program, or Eurostars. The University provides support in the application process and by protecting the intellectual property.
The Knowledge and Technology Transfer (KTT) Service helps to transform research results into benefits for society. Be it through a start-up or a collaboration with an established company, the KTT Service supports you in understanding and forging a path, as well as with the drafting, negotiation and approval of research contracts and patent applications. The KTT Service manages all the intellectual property of UNIFR.
