This seminar comprises a series of technology transfer case studies that illustrate how patents facilitate technology transfer from R&D-conducting organisations and promote market success. The examples cover a range of economic sectors, countries, and types of technology transfer. Each case study provides key takeaways for stakeholders in universities, other public research organisations and businesses. Overall, they demonstrate the importance of patents for technology transfer to start-ups, spin-offs and established companies.

Case study: Atlantic Therapeutics (medical devices - Ireland)

Research collaboration between University College Dublin (UCD) and Bio-Medical Research (BMR) led to the development of a novel training device for the treatment of stress-induced urinary incontinence. . UCD licensed the technology to BMR, which validated the device in clinical trials, secured regulatory approval and launched it in Europe. BMR established Atlantic Therapeutics as a spin-out company to secure investment to target the US market. Atlantic Therapeutics, its flagship product, offers patients safe, non-invasive and cost-effective treatment for stress-induced urinary incontinence, improving the quality of lives.
