Acquire ESRF technologies

 As a world leading synchrotron, the ESRF has developed unique technologies and equipment that makes it one of the most productive synchrotrons worldwide. The ESRF believes that these innovations which are used daily for its own user programmes, should also be of benefit to other institutes and industry.

 

Selected developments and technologies are available directly from the ESRF or under a license as a technology transfer to industry. It is on this basis that the ESRF has developed its first spin-off, Small Infinity, for the commercialisation of first-class atomic force microscopes (AFM).


Our technology transfer policy

  • promotes the use of ESRF technologies to benefit society through licensing to companies who turn them into successful commercial products
  • supports the innovative goal of the ESRF by generating licensing income which is recycled to our user and development programmes, and contributes to the recognition of the inventors
  • develops partnerships with local and international industrial networks.
