What is Tech Transfer?


Bringing a new product or drug onto the market, outsourcing your production or relocating it: it all takes a lot of effort and time and any delay might result in loss of income. An efficient transfer of technologies between all parties involved can speed up these processes. Technology Transfer refers to the process of transferring knowledge, technologies, or processes from one organization to another entity. It involves transferring not only the technical aspects but also the associated intellectual property, documentation, and expertise required to effectively utilize and replicate the technology or process.  

QbD helps you to transfer technologies successfully in many different circumstances. 

  • Mergers and Acquisitions 
    During a merger between companies or the acquisition of one company by another, the transfer of information from one company to another is required. 
  • Outsourcing 
    An outsourcing process always involves a transfer of technological expertise, processes, assets, and sometimes even employees. 
  • Spin-offs 
    It’s important for spin-offs to focus not only on research and development, but also on other aspects such as technology transfer.
