TETRAMAX held its first Industrial Advisory Board meeting and presented the granted Technology Transfer Experiments!

On September 13 in Aachen, the TETRAMAX partners from all over Europe as well as the industrial advisory board came together to present the interim results, highlights and challenges of the first completed project year. Alongside a presentation on the achievements of the past year, the advisory board members gave valuable feedback and issues for open discussion to the TETRAMAX consortium.

During the meeting, the representatives of the selected Technology Transfer Experiments (TTX) were invited to present their tech transfer idea and outlined the relevance of the TETRAMAX financial support for their experimental work. The discussions on technical and business aspects between the TTX representatives and the audience have successfully rounded up the meeting.

An impressively led and managed European competence network that drives true technology brokerage sustainability. It breaks the code on how to effectively and efficiently link EU funding, university research and industry success. Its current focus on computing will pave the way to the next exponential productivity jump to support Industry 5.0 via the heart of the European social and economic fabric: SMEs and midcaps. If we execute prescriptively to the end, then we can only succeed and make a difference.”

Dr. Oscar Gallego Castilla, General Electric Digital, GED Europe Director & GED Spain Chairman of the Board

TETRAMAX is one of the impressive examples what can be achieved if European Partners push for one common goal: transfer academic excellence into new businesses. Building upon years of experience in similar programs by applying constant learnings and novel ideas provides an extremely vivid framework for success. Great achievements after only one year set high expectation for a further blooming TETRAMAX future. Looking forward for more to come!”

TETRAMAX bridges the gap between Universities, SMEs and OEMs and helps fostering innovation within Europe.”

Dr. Gabriel Marchesan Almeida, HARMAN International/Samsung

Technology transfer is inherently hard and the TETRACOM project demonstrated very impressive results in accelerating incubation of technologies from research to products. I’m very excited to see that TETRAMAX has the potential to have even bigger impact, and I will be following the performance metrics on impact of the technology transfers very closely.”
