Science and Technology Facilities Council - Knowledge Exchange Obligations

Knowledge Exchange Obligations

STFC is active in its responsibility for knowledge exchange from government funded civil science into UKPLC. As such, many technologies are licensed to UK companies and spin-out companies created including:

  • L3 Technology (L3T);
  • Microvisk;
  • Orbital Optics Ltd;
  • Oxsensis;
  • PETRRA;
  • Quantum Detectors;
  • ThruVision.

However knowledge exchange activities are not purely limited to commercialization of technologies, but also cover a wider range of activities which aim to transfer expertise into the wider economy.

Famous quotes containing the words obligations, knowledge and/or exchange:

    In the field of world policy I would dedicate this Nation to the policy of the Good Neighbor—the neighbor who resolutely respects himself and, because he does, respects the rights of others—the neighbor who respects his obligations and respects the sanctity of his agreements in and with a world of neighbors.
    Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882–1945)

    It is not when truth is dirty, but when it is shallow, that the lover of knowledge is reluctant to step into its waters.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    We shall exchange our material thinking for something quite different, and we shall all be kin. We shall all be enfranchised, prohibition will prevail, many wrongs will be righted, vampires and grafters and slackers will be relegated to a class by themselves, stiff necks will limber up, hearts of stone will be changed to hearts of flesh, and little by little we shall begin to understand each other.
    —General Federation Of Women’s Clubs (GFWC)
