Commercialisation of Technologies
The commercialisation of technologies at the U.Porto is synonymous with the introduction of new, distinct, and competitive R&D results to the market that solve existing technical problems and give rise to new products or services. Our scientific production is aimed at bringing innovative solutions to the market and contributing towards a strong, sustainable, and knowledge-based economy.
Currently, the U.Porto has a portfolio of over 150 active national and international patents available for commercial application. The commercialisation of technologies developed at the U.Porto is managed by the U.Porto Innovation office. This office is responsible for the transfer of knowledge at the U.Porto and for ensuring that market demands are met by the product/service to be transferred.
