Corporate spin-offs are set up on the initiative of research community members. These companies exploit the knowledge and technologies developed through the research work carried out at the university

They thus contribute to economic and social development, promote progress and create wealth. University spin-offs are mainly based on emerging, advanced and innovative technologies; through which they generate value and highly qualified employment.

The Universidade de Vigo is fully committed to the creation of local university spin-offs. The R&D Office services facilitate this line of technology and knowledge transfer:

  • Advice on the procedures for the creation of Universidade de Vigo spin-offs.
  • Application analysis and report regarding the university's research results: ownership, technologies and knowledge to be transferred, appropriateness of the transfer to the project, its valorisation, etc.
