The ASTP-Proton report with the results of the annual survey is expected to be presented later this month at the Annual Conference of ASTP-Proton in Copenhagen. Thanks to the efforts of all technology transfer offices in Europe, the Survey Committee managed to receive the survey from 373 respondents. This is an unprecedented success with respect to the survey of 2014, when 207 offices participated to the survey.
The report will highlight the results of the data collection in 2015, that refers to year 2014. Such encouraging results were also possible thanks to the national associations that are represented in the NAAC and that generously contributed to collect the results from local TTOs. This year, for the first time, data from UK are also available, thanks to the support of our colleagues in UK.
The Survey Committee (that includes Massimiliano Granieri, VP Survey of ASTP-Proton, Koen Verhoef, Peter O’Fegan, Laura Ramaciotti, Ugo Rizzo and Arlyta Wibowo) is now crunching data to come up with the first report. The report will be available in PDF at the website of ASTP-Proton. Data collection for the year 2015 will start later in the fall.
