One of the greatest discoveries a man makes, one of his great surprises, is to find he can do what he was afraid he couldn't do. (Henry Ford)
According to European Commission, «Technology Transfer (TT) refers to the process of conveying results stemming from scientific and technological research to the market place and to wider society, along with associated skills and procedures, and is as such an intrinsic part of the technological innovation process».
Behind this process, which involves many factors, including human and organizational ones, there is obviously the ability to produce good or high quality research. This is the goal that guides the activities of INRiM staff every day and that allows us to give back to society the results of our scientific and technological activities.
