Okay, enough of UK sites for now. It’s time for something different. Let’s move on to Jerusalem. Tonight, I’ll talk about Yissum, who offers technology transfer services for marketing the inventions and know-how that are generated b the University’s researchers and students.
For you guys who don’t know what technology transfer means, it means a way to share the knowledge generated somewhere to other places, who can further develop it and use it on products, services or more research.
Over the past forty years, the technology transfer office in Yissum has granted more than four hundred licenses, resulting in almost a billion dollars sales of products around the globe, every year. That’s a lot of money, if you stop and think about it. You probably won’t earn a billion dollars in your whole life. Or even in two.
At the center of the world, Yissum is not here for games. Their strongest areas are nutrition, agriculture, water and environmental technologies, computer science, homeland security, medicine, pharmaceuticals and nanotechnology, so you know it covers pretty much all the cutting edge areas out there.
If you’re into researching, you should give a look at what Yissum has to offer. I guarantee you it’s not a waste of time.
