Technology Transfer at
IRB Barcelona

Exceptional scientific results deserve to be transferred to society. With this in mind, IRB Barcelona has devised a proactive strategy to ensure that the discoveries made in its labs are developed into products and technologies that serve the scientific and healthcare communities, as well as society at large.

Advised by an international Business Advisory Board, specialists from the Innovation Department work shoulder to shoulder with our researchers to identify results with commercial potential and to protect, develop and commercialize them, with the aim to establish strategic public-private sector collaborations, licensing agreements, and spin-off companies.

Our goal is to leverage IRB Barcelona research as a powerful driving force of the economy, whether in the form of diagnostic tools, new medicines and technologies, or even employment opportunities.
