During the last years SET developed and established a wide network with international partners. In the area of IP commercialization SET formed partnerships with IP Funds in Seattle – US, Ideabridge Seoul – Korea. For spin-off and project development SET creates connections to IP Group, London, the international Global Cleantech Cluster Association. A long term and successful cooperation was formed with the Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Science (KFAS) to create, manage and execute R&D opportunities for local and regional companies in the GCC region.
For financial opportunities and alternative investments SET works in and on collaborations not only with SEAF Fund, Washington D.C. – US, several Wealth Funds and Family Offices, but also with organizations in the public sector.
In 2016 SET started the major topic „Smart City“ with an own subsidiary company as member of the Fraunhofer initiative „Morgenstadt / M:CI Network“ to break down this headline to real projects and execution. With this subsidiary SET completed the full value chain of Technology Transfer with a real deployment structure and profitable investment vehicle.
This entity will act as an „Evergreen Fund“ based on single project investments.
Mid and long term strategy of SET is to establish a successful Technology Transfer model, driven by deployment structures and options like „smart city“ and to establish own technology platforms and spin-offs in major technical areas like water, food and storage.
