Key facts

The transfer of knowledge and technology in the domain of the Federal Institutes of Technology (ETH Domain) takes place, among other things, through the secondary occupations of professors and employees, as well as through the foundation of companies by doctoral students, other students and scientific employees (spin-offs). Knowledge and technology transfer is one of the statutory tasks and is also a strategic goal for the ETH Domain set by the Federal Council.
