In 2017 Ascenion also supported the transfer of EU-financed research projects, for example as a consortium partner on projects in the European research and innovation programme, Horizon 2020. Two such cooperations started at the beginning of 2017:
11 partners are working together on UTILE to support the commercialization of EU-financed research projects, for example through an online marketplace. Together with three other knowledge and technology transfer (KTT) organizations, Ascenion is evaluating the research projects’ commercial potential. The other KTT partners working alongside Ascenion are Bergen Teknologioverføring (Norway), Karolinska Institutet (Sweden) and LifeArc (UK).
9 partners, led by the Helmholtz Zentrum München, are developing a hybrid endoscope for more rapid and easier diagnosis of oesophageal cancer. Ascenion is responsible for the work package concerning the distribution, utilization and communication of research results.
