Event website & Registration: www.embl.de/conferences/TTC09

Registration deadline: 21 October 2009


The seven intergovernmental organisations (CERN, EFDA, EMBL, ESA, ESO, ESRF, ILL) involved in EIROforum have extensive expertise in the areas of basic research and the management of large, international infrastructures, facilities and research programmes.

In November 2009, with the support of the European Commission (FP7-ERARESORG-2007-RTD), EIROforum will organise a two-day conference to present and discuss their approaches to Technology Transfer and show how these activities contribute to the development of the European Research Area. Intellectual property, technology and knowledge transfer are an integral part of the R&D activities and missions of the EIROforum organisations.

The programme of the conference is tailored to provide a platform for the delegates to explore new approaches for managing a successful and more effective research marketing and technology transfer by exchange of good practices, new ideas and sharing of experience. The meeting will be organised as an open discussion forum that will hopefully indicate new avenues for successful translation of research into economically viable benefits that will boost the economy for Europe and benefit its citizens.

The meeting will be a unique opportunity to bring together representatives of European advanced science and technology infrastructures, European politicians, representatives of the European industry, representatives of the national governments of the European Union, representatives of the European Investment Bank, the European Patent Office, representatives of the institutions of the European Community and other research communities.

EIROforum is convinced that this conference bringing together the major European stakeholders will address issues that are essential for the progress of the European Research Area, as indicated in the 2007 Green Paper and in the recent Commission Communication on management of Intellectual in knowledge transfer activities (April 2008).
