Business and Innovation Department

In 2019, all Technology Transfer activities in ICN2 were consolidated under the newly created unit of Business and Innovation (B&I), with the resulting reorganization of tasks, goals and vision. Dr Pablo Pomposiello Miravent was recruited from the corporate world to head the B&I team and staff it accordingly to ICN2’s strategic vision. The B&I Office is now fully operational and has brought new energy to its mission of accelerating the transition from basic scientific results to market through innovation.

In 2020, and for the second year in a row, the total new business brought by B&I broke a record 1.1M€ mark, while ICN2’s network of corporate partners grew to 127 members, also a record. In 2020, and for the first time its history, ICN2 received substantial private donations to support leading technology transfer projects.
