The development of a long-term technology transfer strategy with smart distribution of usage rights allowed the Technical University of Vienna to achieve scientific breakthroughs and commercialisation success with its industry partner, Ivoclar. This led to the creation of two university start-ups. As one of these two start-ups, Cubicure was able to benefit from a strong patent portfolio during early-stage funding rounds and to build strategic partnerships.
Changing the 3D printing landscape
- Building up a network of trusted partners is essential for technology transfer at any level. The creation of technical solutions to overcome complex problems often requires an interdisciplinary approach. Application-driven R&D needs industrial sponsors to engage in joint R&D projects.
- In projects funded by third-parties, the TTO's IP management system must secure control over the allocation of usage rights in order to increase the chances for broad commercial exploitation of academic technologies in as many applications as possible.
- A broad IP portfolio in terms of the number of patent families, claimed technologies and geographical scope provides the core basis for young spin-off companies seeking funding and partnerships and looking to access markets.
- Long-term business relationships are crucial for successful technology transfer. Understanding, considering and defining each party's requirements helps to build the trust needed to establish and maintain such relationships.
