Tech transfer

Bringing a new product or drug onto the market, outsourcing your production or relocating your location of production: this takes a lot of effort and time and any delay might result in loss of income. An efficient transfer of technologies between all parties involved can speed up this kind of processes. QbD has developed a Lean Technology Transfer Framework that supports your tech transfer process more efficiently and rapidly.

Tech Transfer in various contexts

QbD helps you to transfer technologies successfully in various circumstances.

  • Mergers and Acquisitions
    During a merger between companies or the acquisition of one company by another, the transfer of information from one company to another is required.
  • Outsourcing
    An outsourcing process always involves a transfer of technological expertise, processes, assets, and sometimes even employees.
  • Spin-offs
    It’s important for spin-offs to focus not only on research and development, but also on other aspects such as technology transfer.

Our technology transfer framework as Lingua Franca

Very few companies have policies or a standardised approach in place to ensure the adequate transfer of technologies between departments, companies or locations. Our QbD Lean Technology Transfer Framework consists of a scenario, risk-based approach combined with templates. It serves as a lingua franca and ensures thorough understanding between both the sending and receiving units during your tech transfer.

Four phases in Tech Transfer

Overall, QbD’s services and expertise cover all four phases in technology transfer.

  • Phase 1. Duties and responsibilities
    This phase deals with project preparation and focuses on both the legal and organisational aspects.
  • Phase 2. Data exchange
    All parties now determine which information they will exchange. In this phase, QbD provides a tech transfer checklist, the right templates and tailored advice.
  • Phase 3. Testing and process validation
    The receiver analyses the process of the sender, aligns it with its own procedures and equipment, and validates it. This is where QbD’s validation experts come in.
  • Phase 4. Registration dossier and lessons learned
    All information is assembled for the registration dossier. QbD’s tech transfer checklist includes the various points of interest during this phase.
