The Schools belonging to JoTTO support the creation and development of spin-off companies, as a useful tool for making public research an engine of local, regional and national economic development and for the creation of employment and new resources for the country.

A spin-off is a company whose purpose is to transfer to the market the results and skills acquired in carrying out research activities at the institutions of origin.

The Schools regulate the authorization procedures for the establishment of spin-off companies with their own internal regulations and identify the conditions for maintaining the status. The internal staff of the Schools who intend to set up a spin-off company can contact JoTTO for a first preliminary meeting to evaluate the idea.

Over the years, the Schools have supported the creation of various spin-offs, in the following technological fields:

  • Aerospace
  • Automation&Robotics
  • Cultural heritage
  • Biomedical
  • Electronics
  • Energy and environment
  • ICT
  • life sciences
  • Nanotech & Materials
  • Innovation services
  • Other
