UZH provides researchers with hands-on support when it comes to translating scientific findings into products and services. We also assist researchers who want to establish their own spin-off. UZH therefore has a technology transfer office called Unitectra which is run jointly with the universities of Basel and Bern.
Unitectra supports universities and their researchers in the commercial exploitation of research findings. Unitectra’s services include:
In addition, Unitectra supports researchers in negotiating research contracts with partners from the private and public sectors, taking university guidelines into account. This applies in particular to contracts in which regulations on intellectual property are relevant.
