Office for Partnership, Knowledge and Technology Transfer

The University of Luxembourg asserts the importance of its official mission consisting in transferring knowledge and technology to society’s benefit. Based on a research of recognised excellence, research partnerships with the socio-economic world are encouraged and developed.

Serving businesses, civil society and researchers, the Office for Partnership, Knowledge and Technology Transfer (PaKTT Office) is your primary contact point.

Networked with a staff dedicated to projects and partnerships in faculties and interdisciplinary centres, the PaKTT Office supports projects from their conception to the valorisation of the scientific results obtained. Alongside the Research Support Department (RSD) and the legal and financial services of the University, the team in charge of promoting Partnerships intervenes on various aspects referring to set-ups, legal contracts, protection of Intellectual Property (IP), commercialisation and research valorisation.

Our objectives include the transfer of IP rights to existing companies and the creation of spin-offs benefiting from the University's operating licenses.

We cover activities of research carried out by the University solely or in collaboration with public and private institutions (start-ups, SMEs, large groups). Partnerships between companies and the University can benefit from multiple regional, national, European and global support, as well as funding. The PaKTT Office actively participates in the development of Luxembourg's innovation ecosystem.

Furthermore, the Office also offers and implements the University's KTT policy with respect to its overall commitments, and takes part in the elaboration of its strategy.

The university's talents at the service of partnerships and transfer are specifically trained and bring their experience acquired in the academic sector and the business world, in the scientific and technological branches, as well as in commercial, marketing, legal and industrial property sectors (patents, trademarks and licenses).
