The Transferkolleg at a glance
In collaboration with the Commission for Technology and Innovation (CTI), the Swiss Academy of Engineering Sciences (SATW) is issuing a call for project proposals in soft materials which have the potential for future industrial development.
The short project proposals should outline the basic idea and its possible commercial applications. Ideally, projects should be submitted jointly by partners from industry and academia (universities, ETH/EPF, universities of applied sciences, research institutions) interested in investigating possible applications. Where partners have not yet been identified, the SATW will offer its services to help establish contacts.
Funding for selected projects is set at CHF 16 000, intended to cover the cost of setting up the collaboration between academic and industrial partners. In addition to this financial support, the SATW will provide advice upon request. Furthermore, a one-and-a-half-day workshop is organised to bring together project partners with recognised experts in the field of innovation transfer.
Submission of project proposals: beginning of Jan 13
Deadline for submission: end of Feb 13
Notification of acceptance: end of Apr 13
Workshop: 6/7 Jun 13
