At the Institute of Semiconductors, which is part of the Aachen University, the current model of technology transfer, in general, similar to that described in the previous case, but, of course, has some differences. So, at the Institute under the supervision of Professor Kurtz (Prof. Dr. H. Kurz) operates a privately held company AMO GmbH, which operates at Innovation Center AMICA (Kompletenzentrum AMO / AMICA). It is in this center and there is a process of bringing to the level of basic industrial development of the University, which subsequently implemented, including the firm AMO. In this case, as well as in the previous case, the widely used public funds. They are, however, can only be used for innovative projects and reinvestment to develop its own database, which is already the property of the company and the center.

Headquartered in Gertsogenrase, near Aachen, the company CEROBEAR GmbH ( is a typical representative of industrial companies to withdraw from the Innovation Centre and already has become firmly on his feet. It is located in a separate, purpose-built building (industrial area of about 2 thousand square meters. M) and is engaged in manufacturing ceramic bearings special purpose osoboustoychivyh to high temperatures, aggressive media and wear. These bearings are used in aerospace engineering (for example, the main engine of the Shuttle), chemical, metallurgical and food industries, communications, etc. The company is certified by NASA and has customers all over the world, (NASA, SKF, GE, Pratt & Whitney etc.) . For individual products, it is practically the only manufacturer in the world. The company’s products have been largely based on the developments made in Franhoferovskom Institute of Industrial Technologies. These include, for example, machining technology with support for the laser. The company employs about 80 staff with an annual sales volume of about 3.5 million euros.

One of the most effective in developing high-tech countries in Europe is Finland. Rationally constructed system of scientific organizations, and actively promoting the state (in science spent 4,5% of GDP) allowed Finland to soon make a breakthrough in a number of highly industrialized countries, whose economies are focused in the XXI century.
