100 Technology Offers stemming from EU Biotechnology RTD results

Funded under: FP5


Innovation is fed by research. Poor exploitation of research results is a European weakness which holds back the innovation process. In an attempt to remedy this, the European Union's Fifth Research Framework Programme specified, for the first time, that a Technological Implementation Plan (TIP) should be delivered as a part of the final report of all research contracts. It was an effort to support the spirit of entrepreneurship and to sensitize European scientists towards intellectual property and ownership of research results.
This booklet contains 100 technology offers deriving from biotechnology projects supported since 1994 under the last three EU Research Framework Programmes, and selected on the basis of the TIPs and with the help of scientific officers of the European Commission at DG Research. The booklet's objective is to raise interest among Europeans to create new successful partnerships. Industrial participation is an important factor in EU translational research. Exploitation is a key to innovation.
