CERIM

Self-assessment tool

The self-assessment tool (SAT) is an organisational capacity assessment tool designed for the use by technology transfer institutions (TTIs).

The SAT aims at

>Assessing the performance of the TTI in various activities of technology transfer by comparing its results with other organisations;

>Assessing the organisational and technological transfer practices of the TTI individually or in comparison with other organisations;

>Promoting organisational learning by bringing staff together in cross-functional, cross-hierarchical groups.

The manual for the tool can be downloaded below. The tool can be reach by the following link, however participation requires login data. Please contact inno AG for a user profile and password, in case you are interested in using the tool.
