Thematic Technology Transfer

We help good ideas flourish. The Thematic Technology Transfer (TTT) program enables researchers to take their research ideas to the next level, validate them, and found a successful spin-off. Combining the strengths of the four technical universities in the Netherlands with that of TNO and several UMCs, TTT stimulates, supports, and expedites the development of promising spin-offs.

Working together to create impact

Taking good ideas to the next level. Stimulating, supporting, and expediting the practical application of promising research results at an early stage. Working together to create impact with regard to relevant themes. That is what drives TTT.

With TTT, the four technical universities in the Netherlands (4TU) and TNO strive to stimulate new innovative activities. We do so by identifying potential at an early stage and assisting researchers with the valorization of their research. Our diverse fields of expertise allow us to have a significant impact. Our complementary knowledge of various domains is easily accessible and stimulates cross-over collaboration. Our joint focus on key themes and the financial support we can offer, provide a powerful impulse to prospective entrepreneurs who want to assess and capitalize on the market opportunities available to them. At the moment, our work is centered around the themes of Circular Technology, Smart Industry, and MedTech.
