The 2017 Prize in the Business Link subcategory received the Marketing responsible of the Technology Transfer Office (DTT) of our University, Oscar Astudillo, a recognition granted by Corfo and the Network of Technical Managers (RedGT).
The delivery of these distinctions aimed to highlight the cases of commercialization based on R&D and the work of the offices of technology transfer in the country.
In this application, carried out by the Office of Licensing and Transfer of the Corporation and the Direction of Technology Transfer, in charge of Patricia Klein, 32 science-business linkers participated in this competition from various universities of the country.
Oscar Astudillo appreciated the award highlighting the work of relationship with business. "We have managed to give a push to the productive sectors through the approach to the industry. That has been reflected in conventions and agreements of collaboration with private entities such as PF, Pfizer, Cramer and Knop, among others, in which we demand in science and technology that these companies may need to tie them with basic and applied research to develop the academic courses through projects," he said.
On the other hand, the Network of Technical Managers (RedGT), honored the Office of Technology Transfer and Licensing of the UTALCA together with five other institutions, with a recognition for completing the installation of these offices and advance their development.
For the vice president, these awards are "a result of the work we've been doing as Vice President for Innovation and Technology Transfer and how DTT in the conformation of the OTL, The Hub of transfer of technology and efforts to transfer and commercialize research results developed in the UTALCA. This has been done mainly through Oscar Astudillo in a dialog with the business sector".
For her part, Marcela Angle, manager of Technological Capabilities at Corfo, said that such distinctions "are intended to recognize and above all to make the effort of an innovation ecosystem that already attracts the attention of other countries and, increasingly, to a network of angel investors".
"It is the result of the effort of a state policy, with which we have been able to show, with facts, that the resources invested are worth it," she said.
