As the Technology Transfer Office in Bergen, BTO supports research institutions in the region, from guiding good ideas towards commercialization of research and societal benefits. Innovation is one of the four social responsibilities in the Norwegian Act relating to universities, together with research, education and dissemination. BTO supports researchers developing innovative research ideas.

Why working with BTO? BTO works to develop innovation and commercialization of research in the Bergen Region. We are the regional centre of expertise for innovation and commercialisation of research results. Our owners are the University of Bergen, Haukeland University Hospital, the Institute of Marine Research, SIVA, Bergen University College and NHH. We also partnered with Christian Michelsen Research, Haraldsplass Diakonale Sykehus, Kunnskapsparken Sogn of Fjordane, NIFES, NOFIMA, Uni Research, and recently the Nansen Center. We work on a daily basis with researchers and help them develop their ideas so that their projects/products become available to the public.

Who should attend the meeting? Researchers, technical staff and innovation enthusiasts are welcome to attend the meeting and share their ideas with us!

The seminar will consist of a presentation held by a business developer from BTO. Following that we would like to engage discussions with individual researchers who would be interested sharing their ideas and developing collaborative work with BTO.
