Innovation Unit

The Innovation Unit provides support to ITQB NOVA Researchers in all innovation projects and contracts related to knowledge and tech transfer having as major goal the translation of ITQB NOVA Research to society with a positive impact in the life of citizens.

IU works with Researchers to identify, assess, protect, develop and commercialize research outputs, aiming to establish collaborations with companies, provision of services, licensing and spin-off creation, thus bridging the gap to the market.

The IU was established in 2009 to facilitate the transformation of knowledge generated at ITQB NOVA’s labs into viable economic products and services.
