We create, accelerate and commercialise innovations based on top research. At their best, innovations can grow into success stories that enhance well-being and facilitate a more sustainable future. Together with companies and investors, we increase the impact of science-based innovations by making solutions available to everyone.
Helsinki Innovation Services Ltd (HIS) functions as the technology transfer company (TTO) of the University of Helsinki. It supports the University’s top research teams turn their science-based inventions into commercially flourishing businesses. In practice, HIS experts evaluate the commercial significance of research-born ideas and inventions, and help researchers with matters such as finding funding for the preparation of commercialisation, out-licensing of technologies, patent protection and establishing spinout companies. HIS also builds the bridge between spinout companies and investors while supporting the building of spinouts' management organisation.
The research carried out at the University of Helsinki's four campuses results in science-based innovations, some of which have significant commercial potential.
