The European Federation of Biotechnology’s Tech Transfer Summit™, organized in partnership with Tech Investor is the original pan-European technology transfer meeting. A pioneering initiative developed not just to foster talk, but to highlight best practices and lessons from the foremost practitioners of tech transfer worldwide and lead the way in providing a forum and platform for learning,  networking, partnering and cooperation.

With large corporations such as Big Pharma, Large Biotech and industrial-based companies in the chemical and agricultural industries looking to create and secure innovative deals with universities, research institutes and early-stage and emerging biotech companies, the community as a whole requires Technology Transfer initiatives like never before. In such a market, understanding, knowledge and important connections to deliver the transfer of valuable and sought-after technology is a pre-requisite. For scientists, universities and research institutes, there is also a responsibility to ensure that when publicly funded science generates world class results, this science is applied and society is able to benefit from it. Smart, effective approaches to tech transfer are crucial to the development of a Knowledge Based Bio Economy.

The Tech Transfer Summit™, created by the European Federation of Biotechnology and Tech Investor Ltd., is the leading event of its kind, pioneering the effort to ensure that world class innovation is applied and brought to the market or society. It’s about utilising science & innovation rather than leaving it to sit on the shelf. Bringing together academia, industry and CEO entrepreneurs with leading international experts and practitioners in technology transfer, IP and licensing, the Tech Transfer Summit™ provides an un-matched environment for fostering increased and improved technology transfer, making sure that the true potential of world-class research is achieved.

The Tech Transfer Summit™  will be held in Paris, France on 6 - 7 October 2008 at EuroBiO 2008 at the Porte Maillot Palais des Congrès.
