On the invitation of the Embassy of Israel last December András Balogh, Director of Innovation took part in a field trip in Israel, which included a visit to Yissum.
“This was the moment when I realised that I wanted to ask the Israeli colleagues of technology transfer to hold a course at Semmelweis University. I hope that the introduction of Yissum’s unique tool set at the university will greatly contribute to the reinforcement of technology transfer and business management as well as the financial support of research activities right from the beginning.”, András Balogh said.
In his presentation Tamir Huberman, Chief Information Officer and Responsible for Marketing at Yissum gave an overview of the factors that make Israel successful in the field of innovation and startup companies. He introduced the operative principles, procedures, tools and practices of the technology transfer company which have enabled them to obtain over 10,000 registered patents since its foundation in 1964.
