Unitectra is the technology transfer office of the Universities of Bern, Basel and Zurich. Unitectra supports researchers in the commercial translation of research results into new products and services (patents, licenses), in negotiating research contracts and in founding a spin-off company.

SATT* Conectus brings Alsace's public research laboratories and companies closer together to increase the number of collaborations between these two worlds and thus boost French innovation. The first created in France in 2012, Conectus brings researchers' inventions to market and and promotes all forms of collaboration between researchers and companies.
