2009 (English)In: IFMBE Proceedings / [ed] Olaf Dössel & Wolfgang C. Schlegel, Springer, 2009, Vol. 25/12, no 12, 127-130 p.Conference paper (Refereed)Text
A centre for research in Biomedical engineering and physics (CMTF) has been built up in Northern Sweden. The CMTF has resulted in increased growth of the biomedical engineering activities both in academia and in the industry in Northern Sweden. Fore example six new companies have resulted from the research. Cooperation was built up between the CMTF and 15 established companies. A research company for business development of the research results from the centre has been established and is owned by the project managers in the centre. The company is called CMTF Business Development Co Ltd and it has also increased the interest for business development questions among the scientists in the centre, i.e. encouraged entrepreneurship.
