cover art for Beyond the Breakthrough featuring Silvio Bonaccio

We are joined by Silvio Bonaccio, head of ETH transfer, the commercialisation office for ETH Zurich, to discuss how he built the office from scratch two decades ago and turned it into one of the most successful in the world, why spinout survival rates can be misleading and why all that talk about continental Europe not doing a great job churning out companies and raising big funds ignores all the fantastic work that is going on not just in Zurich but in other cities and countries too.
