We wish to inspire and offer opportunities for the development of entrepreneurship competences and entrepreneurship in the university, to actively consult the creation of new knowledge-based enterprises by our students, ensuring the university’s interests, and implementing an effective preincubation system at the university and its collaboration with the regional and national innovation system.
Each year, members of the University of Tartu create a large amount of new knowledge. A lot of this knowledge can be “translated” into products and services that the market may be interested in. The University of Tartu supports members of the academic family – researchers, employees, students and alumni – in the managing intellectual property and creation and development of knowledge-based enterprises.
The University of Tartu wishes to be a partner to entrepreneurs for the development of society and the economy. Co-operation with our researchers gives the company a competitive advantage and access to world-class development services.
