Mission of USI Transfer


We foster innovation

USI Transfer ensures that fundamental research findings developed at the Università della Svizzera italiana (USI) are accessible and transferred to industry. In this way USI, together with the affiliated Institutes (Institute for Research in Biomedicine - IRB, Institute for Oncology Research - IOR, and Istituto di Ricerche Solari "Aldo e Cele Daccò"- IRSOL Locarno) improves the competitiveness, in particular of Swiss companies.


What is Technology Transfer?

Technology transfer is a process that allows scientific findings, knowledge and intellectual property to flow from universities to companies and public entities, supporting global innovation needs.
