The Office of Research Results Transfer (OTRI) is the institutional channel through which UAM researchers receive support, as do the companies associated with our institution, contributing towards our aim to strengthen the University’s relationships in its surroundings (with businesses and institutions).

After Teaching and Research, the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid considers as its third key mission to be the Transfer of Technology and Knowledge from the UAM to the business sector, since this is a key factor in the improvement of the competitiveness of businesses and is an essential element of the generation of new knowledge in innovation. In this way, we make the excellence achieved in research activities and innovation available to citizens, contributing towards social wellbeing and sustainable development.

The Office of Research Results Transfer (OTRI) is the institutional channel through which UAM researchers receive support, as do the companies associated with our institution, contributing towards our aim to strengthen the University’s relationships in its surroundings (with businesses and institutions).

The generation of knowledge is no longer taken into account on its own, but alongside its corresponding environment and the structures needed for its transfer. Bearing in mind this strategic approach, the UAM assigns to the FUAM the task of acting as an intermediary between the UAM and society, so that its capacities may be improved by offering a high quality service. The UAM’s Office of Research Results Transfer, part of the FUAM, has for the last twenty years posed as a specific, expert body of renowned prestige, in charge of activating, propelling and managing knowledge transfer activities and collaboration between the university and businesses, thus contributing to the university’s more efficient presence in innovation processes and its subsequent benefit to Society.

The success of Research and Development transfer strategies and the development of innovation are linked to a constant and long-lasting relationship with the world of public research and the business sector, and it is here that the role of Office of Research Results Transfers (OTRI) comes into its own. In this way, the OTRI has a two-fold mission: to inform, assess and support the management of Research, Development and Innovation within the university and in the companies and institutions associated with our University, whilst at the same time serving as a link between the University and its environment (companies and institutions).

The OTRI of our Foundation is involved in the OTRI University Network, amongst others, and works with other research results offices from public universities in Madrid as part of the Programa Madri+d programme run by the Madrid Region’s Directorate General for Research.

To achieve these aims, the OTRI carries out the following tasks:
