The National Research Council of Italy pays a particular attention to the cooperation with the industrial system. Actions include joint research programmes, research contracts, consulting, licensing and patent releases, foundation of research consortia and spin off companies, and many other initiatives aimed at enhancing the technology transfer processes to companies and business sectors.
A specific Structure devoted to Technology Transfer and Valorisation of research coordinates and connects the Cnr activities as regards the following topics: marketing research; intellectual property rights protection management and enhancement through the setting up of new technological enterprises; design and implementation of the technology transfer processes.
The model both sustained by scientific results and by industrial interests is leading science towards a crossroad: will life sciences succeed in understanding complex biological functions by using only technology, Big Data and artificial intelligence? Or do we need a new theoretical frameworks? Or, more likely, do we have to integrate the two approaches?
The Winter college will offer Ph.D. students and other emerging researchers broad training in the innovative applications of optics and photonics in food and agriculture.Deriving impact through research, development and entrepreneurship in this sector will be explored.
Due to many requests, the deadline of the Call for Abstracts for the 11th International Symposium on Digital Earth (ISDE11) has been extended to February 28th. Further details about the submission of abstracts can be found at the official website
Technology Transfer (TT) represents the Cnr’s second mission, after the scientific research. The Technology Transfer Office of Cnr (TTO) is responsible for all the activities related to TT, such as protection of research results and promotion and support for Spin-off creation. On behalf of Cnr, TTO is part of TTO CIRCLE sponsored by the JRC of the European Commission
Mivoq (Mimic Voice Quest) is a spin-off company from Cnr. The company core business is the development of specific services in the field of information technology and particularly of text-To-Speech (TTS) technologies for any business
CNR supports and encourages its researchers in protecting and valorizing the results of their research, promoting their exploitation in collaboration with industrial partners and/or other institutions. TTO of Cnr acts in coordination with the Departments and Institutes in order to support and regulate the procedures related to the different phases of Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) generated by researchers through independent, co-funded and commissioned research
Our Promotion and marketing activities are focused on generating opportunities for collaboration and sharing research infrastructures by leveraging Cnr’s IPR portfolio, our scientists’ know-how and skills, as wells as our network of stakeholders (scientists, industry, other PROs, etc.)
The creation of spin-off companies is an instrument for Cnr to pursue its institutional objects even in conjunction with other public and private parties. It contributes to societal and economic development of knowledge and enhances relationships and interactions between research and industry
