Through research at the centre for biomedical engineering and physics (CMTF) seven new companies have been established in Northern Sweden. The activities have generated growth both in academia at the universities and in the industry in Northern Sweden. Cooperation was built up between the 23 research projects and more than 20 established companies in the field of biomedical engineering. A researcher-owned company for business development of the research results from the CMTF has been established, CMTF Business Development Co Ltd, and has launched its first spin-off company in the autumn 2009. It has also increased the interest for commercial and entrepreneurship questions among the scientists in the centre. So far seven spin-off companies have resulted from the CMTF-research.
