Technology Transfer Value Chain

At INL we are convinced that an important task of our laboratory is to improve our society by solving practical problems and building a modern and better world, rather than just acquiring knowledge for knowledge's sake, thus INL fosters applied research investigation in Nanotechnology. By working with the INL TTM unit, our scientists have the opportunity to collaborate with the industry, as well as to market their inventions. INL research value chain describes the full range of activities which are required to take a product or service from the very beginning, through the different phases of analysis and protection, and the final application of the research efforts.
