Collaboration with Industry

CERIC, as a distributed facility, acts as a focal point for European industry promoting technology transfer and science-driven innovation, connecting and integrating into a unique facility the know-how and technical expertise of the Partner Facilities of the Consortium, which have an exceptional body of skills and experience of interaction with industry.

Collaboration with industry is supported through several different mechanisms (e.g. joint developments, pre-qualification through prototyping, licensing, spin-off creation etc.), within a common strategy and policy for intellectual property and know-how protection and exploitation.

CERIC, as an integrated Industrial Liaison & Technology Transfer (IL&TT) facility fosters the transfer of technologies developed within CERIC and partner activities to outside industries and/or institutions, and it supports them in finding and preparing the most suitable tailored package for R&D activities addressing their specific needs.
