Partnership, Knowledge & Technology Transfer Office
The University of Luxembourg asserts the importance of its official mission consisting in transferring knowledge and technology to society’s benefit.
Serving researchers, civil society and businesses, the Office for Partnership, Knowledge and Technology Transfer (PaKTT Office) is your primary contact point.
The PaKTTO supports projects from their conception to the valorisation of the scientific results obtained. Alongside the Research Support Department (RSD) and the legal and financial services of the University, the team intervenes on various aspects referring to set-ups of projects, legal contracts, protection of Intellectual Property (IP), research valorisation and partnership.
Our main objectives are to widely promote sciences, to disseminate knowledge and to support social innovation and positive impacts through the transfer of IP rights to existing companies, newly created spin-offs, public institutions or civil organizations.
We cover activities of research carried out by the University solely or in collaboration with public and private institutions and stakeholders. Partnerships between the University and actors from the socio-economic world benefit from multiple regional, national and European support. The PaKTT Office actively participates in the development of Luxembourg’s innovation ecosystem.
Furthermore, the Office also offers and implements the University’s Knowledge Transfer policy with respect to its overall commitments and takes part in the elaboration of its strategy.
