What is Technology Transfer

Technology Transfer is intended to increase the value of ESO's research and development activities to society as a whole, and particularly in the ESO Member States.

It aims to enhance the process by which ideas and technologies developed by ESO, either in-house or through industrial contracts, can be applied to applications, fields or projects outside those originally anticipated.

Apart from the economic benefits, there can also be social and cultural benefits as well.
