An important goal of the Weizmann Institute is the conversion of research findings and academic knowledge accumulated by its scientists into practical applications for the improvement of health and the standard of living.
Thus, the Institute encourages cooperation with commercial entities to promote high-tech and bio-tech industry, especially in Israel.
Relationships between its scientists and industrial or business entities are governed by the Weizmann Rules of Intellectual Property and Conflict of Interest.
Marketing and commercialization of all Intellectual Property is accomplished by Yeda Research and Development Co. Ltd, the Institute's commercial arm. The Institute's wishes and priorities in the commercialization process are implemented through the Vice President for Technology Transfer.
