Managing Research DynamicsETH Zurich

Dr. Regula Altmann-Jöhl

the world has changed
The world has changed ...
  • Awareness: research results have an economic value!
  • The US have done it for a long time – Bay-Doyle Act
  • Assumption of the public and some parlamentarians: research at the universities cost a lot of tax payer money and the transfer of the results into products is not effective enough
  • Discussions with industry: industrial partners are less interested in „published knowledge and know-how“– universities on the other hand should and must publish. Since confidentiality is difficult at the universities intellectual property has to be protected.

... and the legislator has reacted :

technology transfer has become an obligation
