UZH for Researchers

Knowledge Transfer


Science and research provide important impulses for the development of a society. At the University of Zurich, new ideas and solutions are constantly being developed that can lead to improvements in all areas of life. For this reason, UZH actively supports its researchers in translating their research results into products and services, in setting up spin-offs and in protecting their inventions through patents.

Innovation and Entrepreneurship

The UZH Innovation Hub is the focal point for innovation and entrepreneurship at the University of Zurich. Here you will find information and support services in the areas of inventions and intellectual property, business start-ups and commercialisation as well as the transfer of research results to business, politics and society.
