Technology Developed by Industry or Institutes

ESO does not develop every technology and techniques alone, but most of the time in collaboration with industry and institutes. Collaboration may take the form of a joint development contract or a procurement contract where the Contractor develops the technology alone. The links below provide access to relevant lists developed via these kinds of contracts. Note however that ESO is not dealing with the commercial aspects of know-how that have been developed in this way.

  • Technologies that have been developed or extended in collaboration with industry through an ESO development contract or collaboration agreement
  • Technologies that have been developed or extended by industry through the execution of an ESO procurement contract
  • Examples of ESO developments that have been taken over by a manufacturer or produced commercially for a wider market
