New Gluten World CEO Carmen Lamacchia and Massimiliano Granieri, founder of MITO Technology, presented the story of the Gluten Friendly™ patent at Netval Summer School 2017. Every year, Netval brings together Technology Transfer Offices (TTOs) from universities across Italy to share their experiences and learn how to better transfer their academic research to the industry. Professor Lamacchia had a lot of advice for patent experts and university officials about her fantastic journey of 6 years. That’s how long it took to transfer her invention. From kitchen microwaves and university labs, through scientific research and into the startup economy.
