Successful technology transfer requires teamwork between BGN's experienced business team and researchers. BGN works closely with BGU researchers/inventors to identify the right commercial opportunity for each invention and innovation. 

The researcher's knowledge, contacts and technological understanding are critical for a successful commercialization p​​rocess. Furthermore the continuous involvement of the researcher during the technology transfer process  and product development by the licensing partner are crucial to the successful development of a product.

BGN's main role in the commercialization process is to assist and guide BGU researchers with:  

Ensuring adequate patent protection

Providing business guidance and commercial assessment

Identifying appropriate partners for licensing and joint ventures

Communicating new inventions and innovations  

Networking with potential partners

Negotiating agreements

Creating startup companies
