Technology transfer at the IZW
It is part of the IZW-strategy to increase its efforts to develop novel ways of knowledge transfer and knowledge exchange to disseminate scientific knowledge on wildlife to numerous non-academic partners. Our knowledge exchange activities are aimed at policy makers, specific stakeholder groups, commercial enterprises and the general public. Recently the IZW increases its efforts to establish collaborations especially with commercial enterprises. The IZW encourages its employees to consider patenting new technology developments and using them as a basis for founding spin-off companies.
