I2 Workshop on Technology Transfer

I2 is a Workshop on Technology Transfer organized by the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2), the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC), and ALBA synchrotron, within the framework of Trans-Pyrenean Node for Scientific Instrumentation (TNSI), an Interreg POCTEFA project.

Technology transfer between academic and industrial fields is a keystone for innovation and societal development. Big efforts and resources are dedicated, however, technology transfer continues being an outstanding challenge.

The I2 Workshop addresses, in an open and transversal manner, the technology transfer opportunities and challenges as seen by the different agents, from public institutions and their innovation support actions, to universities, research centers and small entrepreneur initiatives.

In a world continuously facing new paradigms, innovation is essential even for innovation itself. I2 will aim at small and large scale initiatives devoted to accelerate technology transfer between research and industry.

The Workshop will take place at ALBA Synchrotron, a 3rd generation Synchrotron Light facility located in Cerdanyola del Vallès (Barcelona).
