4 technology transfer types, explained

The Collider is widely-known for being Mobile Word Capital‘s tech-transfer flagship. We have previously discussed over the excellence of scientific research in Spain and the need to return this knowledge into society in the form of palpable advancements. That is what The Collider’s tech-transfer is all about: transforming the results of research and development into marketable products and services. Such ambition involves not only supplying the equipment but mainly the methods, strategy and mindset; that is, transferring knowledge and skills.

This is the essence of The Collider translated to the venture building field: clashing science and entrepreneurship to create highly innovative technological startups. As brilliant as it may seem, this pursuit is born as an answer to a pain too long ignored in this country.
