Promotion and marketing activities

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.).  Those partnerships may lead to new collaborative or commissioned research as well as promote inter-institutional - both public and private – agreements, which may result in new financing sources.

The way in which the TTO operates is based on facilitating the interaction with the Industry and/or Academia by using:

  • The TTO’s staff network;
  • Knowledge tools integrated with the Cnr information system;
  • Coordination of and participation to Projects and Working Groups;
  • Organization of events.
