ESA receives award for Technology Transfer

10.03.2006


ESA has received an award for achievement in the public sector, for its Technology Transfer activities, announced at the first annual International Marketplace and Conference for Technology Transfer Professionals (IPTEC) in Cannes last month.

ESA can claim 200 successful examples of technology transfer in the past 16 years, leading to the set up of 30 companies being set up in Europe. The award, presented by the Mayor of Cannes, was received by Pierre Brisson, ESA Head of technology transfer and promotion.

The IPTEC conference is a unique gathering of some of the world’s leading experts in technology transfer, who will explain and discuss the latest corporate strategies, provide case studies of successful licensing programmes and take part in interactive sessions on technology transfer issues in different industries.



It is organised in association with the leading international industry magazine, Managing Intellectual Property. Keynote speakers included Marshall Phelps of Microsoft, Todd Dickinson of GE, Ruud Peters of Philips and Robert Suter of IBM.

Around 200 technology transfer specialists from companies all over the world attended the event, which was held at the Palais des Festivals, Cannes. As well as the conference sessions, there were opportunities for networking and discussing licensing opportunities. Companies represented included 3M, Alcatel, ARM, BTG, Ericsson, Honeywell, Kimberly-Clark, NEC, Nokia, Xerox and many of the world’s leading research universities

IBM won the inaugural industry award for achievement in technology transfer.

Stanford University was recognized for its achievement in technology transfer, thanks in particular to the success of Google and DNA cloning technology, which it developed with the University of California.

Im Focus: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...

Im Focus: Interference as a new method for cooling quantum devices

Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters

Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
