Dresdener Universitätsjournal published an article dealing with technology transfer and ideas exploitation offered by ScIDre (link to pdf version, page 11). Often researchers are legally prevented or have no capacity or time to promote and sell self-developed equipment, although it might be in great demand. At this point, the partnership with ScIDre sets in. Based on transparent licensing and cooperation agreements, ScIDre is adopting the technological know-how from the partner institution. In this manner, together with ScIDre, research institutes are enabled to satisfy demand for their self-developed technologies. Beside financial aspects, the benefit of the partner institution is an enhanced international visibility due to the designation of licensed products and participation in further development results.
