The improvement of scientific knowledge and technology transfer (KTT) for a better economic sustainability is one of the European key challenges. innoSPICE is an evaluation procedure related to this kind of transfer that supports process improvement of knowledge-intense institutions to generate more innovation while helping investors and research institutions optimize public funds to achieve economic added value. As a standard-based model, innoSPICE has become an international instrument for quality management in the field of innovation and KTT. The model will be officially published within the family of ISO/IEC 15504 models like Automotive SPICE or Enterprise SPICE. Since the established systematic approach to outcome quality management is process quality management, this process reference and assessment model (PRM) partially borrows from recognized process capability models and was tested by KTT practitioners from 13 European countries. As a quality management system, innoSPICE offers research organizations and those responsible for technology transfer an instrument by which they can support KTT activities and make organizational structures and their functionality more transparent through a standard report that can also be published to the outside. This paper presents an introduction to the innoSPICE Model, the assessment methodology and provides a first analysis of the innoSPICE assessments performed so far.
