The interdisciplinary institute for technological innovation (3IT) is set to be an engine and a showcase for innovative practices in university and industrial research. Socially and economically responsible, 3IT accelerates technology transfer in strategic sectors including medical technologies, information and communication technologies, transportation and energy.
The Institute offers an infrastructure for scientific innovation and technology maturation, from idea to marketing, device to proof-of-concept and validation, by supporting the collaborative work of university researchers and industrial members, and by integrating the disciplines of nano and microtechnologies, biomedical engineering, telecommunications, information systems, robotics, ethics of technological development and innovation management.
The 3IT is targeted towards companies that are looking for:
- Technological means that current technologies fail to meet.
- New technologies to take a stand in emerging markets.
- State-of-the-art infrastructure for starting a new business.
- Resources to “derisk” a technology.
