INSPIRED BY


Science

It is a protagonist in our lives, from everyday items, like the TV remote control, to something as sophisticated as an MRI that allows the detection of cancer cells. Science is essential for humanity.

Diversity

Different talents and perspectives allow us to approach each project considering multiple dimensions. Interacting with each of them enables us to conduct an effective and high-standard process.

Flexibility

The management of the broad spectrum of technology transfer activities is a highly dynamic process that encompasses unexpected changes of context. Adapting and navigating them successfully is vital for the success of a project.

CURIOSITY

Motivation, the engine of knowledge allows us to find new alternatives and possibilities, sometimes different from the ones envisioned when a technology first originated.

CREATIVITY

Creativity is at the heart of science. We need to broaden our thinking into ways that allow our mind to connect different ideas and overcome obstacles to create successful TT strategies.

COLLABORATION

All scientific development needs collaboration, work alongside with people who put their resources at the disposal of a common interest. It is essential for all development and growth in this new century.
