SORIN Acquires UCL Spin-off NeuroTECH

The Louvain Technology Transfer Office (LTTO) was created as a partnership between the UCL Research Administration (ADRE) and SOPARTEC SA ( http://www.sopartec.com) to connect industry with academic science and transfer UCL's discoveries from the lab to the market. The technology transfer activities contribute to develop new products and solve problems thanks to research initiated by UCL. They foster innovation in combination with high level of research and education. At UCL, the transfer of technologies dates back to the early nineties. More than 50 spinoff companies, which today generate more than 3,000 jobs, contribute to new economic activity and to the development of society. SOPARTEC is also the managing company of a €43m VIVES Louvain Technology Fund, the largest European investment fund ever initiated by a university. VIVES is a multi-sectorial technology investment fund that invests in spin-offs of Université catholique de Louvain (UCL) as well as start-ups in Belgium and neighboring countries. The objective of the fund is to invest in the development of start-ups, from technological validation through commercial maturity. Please visit : http://www.llto.com  http://www.vivesfund.com

About UCL

Founded in 1425, the Université catholique de Louvain (UCL) is one of Europe´s oldest universities. It offers hundreds of educational programmes  to more than 27,000 students from some  120 countries. UCL is ranked 125th in the QS World University Rankings (2011-2012), making it the number one university in the French Community of Belgium. Education, Research and Service to Society are the three fundamental missions of  UCL. Anchored in a tradition of excellence, they have always opened up UCL to its region, Europe and the world. Research is closely  linked to learning and teaching and is the raison d´être and the driving force of the university's activity. Often applied but also implied, research at UCL is the day-to-day activity of responsible and passionate men and women. Whether in the short or long term, research constitutes one of the best investments in economic, social and cultural terms. Financing research, like financing education and health, must count among the highest priorities of a country and constitutes the pride of an advanced society. Please visit : http://www.uclouvain.be
