About the project
The key differentiator of TETRACOM was an instrument called ‘Technology Transfer Project (TTP)’. TTPs helped to lower the barrier for researchers to make the first steps towards commercialization of their research results. During its three-year pilot phase, it has strongly demonstrated how to optimally address the gap to bring academic excellence to sound business results. With a special focus on small and medium-sized enterprises, the pilot financially supported 50 actual transfer experiments throughout Europe and helped to generate a multitude of new jobs, new products and new businesses. Additionally it established and reinforced long‐term collaborations (far beyond TETRACOM’s project end) on a local, national and also on a multi‐national level.
Based on its highly recognized success demonstrating its effectiveness as key enabler of the digital transformation of the European Industry, TETRACOM has evolved into TETRAMAX, operating at much larger scale and with even higher ambitions (https://www.tetramax.eu).
The TETRACOM project has received funding from the European Union 7th Framework Programme under grant agreement no. 60949
