Accelerating the market launch of innovations and technology. So that society and business can benefit from technologies sooner. That’s the aim of our Technology Transfer programme. We’re always on the lookout for investors and entrepreneurs for this programme.
From technology to spin-off
In the Tech Transfer programme, we consider whether we can turn an in-house technology into a start-up company. Or whether we can arrange a licensing agreement with an existing company. Within projects, we carry out market research, draw up a business plan, and make agreements, among other activities.
Successful completion of the Technology Transfer programme will produce a spin-off with a validated value proposition and a business plan. Including a dedicated team and the latest technology with intellectual property rights (IP rights).
Are you keen to know about current Tech Transfer projects?
Do you want to know more about our spin-offs or contribute to the technologies? Take a look at the spin-offs or contact the entrepreneur.
Investors and strategic partners wanted
The projects are often looking for external investors and strategic partners to help build the new company and launch the first products. With us as a strategic partner, you’re assured of a continuous and reliable deal flow for your pipeline. This is how you gain a competitive edge in an ever-changing market. Would you like to become an investor or strategic partner? Then contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can read about how AI is educated in Chapter 1. How can we make clear to AI which goals we want to pursue as humans? Andhow can we ensure intelligent systems will always function in service of society?
Innovation with AI
What does that world look like in concrete terms? Using numerous examples, TNO has created a prognosis for the future in Chapter 2. Regarding construction, for example, in which AI will be used to check the quality, safety, and energy efficiency of buildings before they are actually built. Or healthcare, where robots will partly take over caregivers’ tasks and AI will be able to autonomously develop medicines.
Innovating with innovation AI
How AI will change research itself is explained in Chapter 3. For example, what role will AI be permitted to play in knowledge sharing? And what will happen when we make machines work with insurmountably large data sets?
David Deutsch on the development and application of AI
Peter Werkhoven, chief scientific officer at TNO, joins physicist, Oxford professor, and pioneer in the field of quantum computing, David Deutsch, for a virtual discussion. Deutsch set out his vision in 1997 in the book, The Fabric of Reality. Together, they talk about the significance of quantum computing for the development and application of AI. Will AI ever be able to generate ‘explained knowledge’ or learn about ethics from humans?
Rob de Wijk on the rise of AI in geopolitical context
Anne Fleur van Veenstra, director of science at TNO’s SA&P unit, interviews Rob de Wijk, emeritus professor of international relations in Leiden and founder of The Hague Centre for Strategic Studies. Rob is also a much sought-after expert who appears on radio and television programmes. What does the rise of AI mean geopolitically and in armed conflicts?
