  For PSI's SwissFEL project several technical solutions were developed in close collaboration with industry employing technology Transfer (TT) from PSI. These involve, e.g., specific C-Band accelerator structures with high gradients and sophisticated manufacturing technology. Enhanced high Q RF pulse compressors allow the efficient utilization of RF power. Strong, small gap undulators allow to reach the desired 1A wavelength at a moderate electron beam energy of 5.8 GeV. Following these achievments PSI has developed and launched - together with specialized equipment companies - a joint initiative for a broader commercialization of PSI's accelerator and instrumentation technologies. Within the framework of the newly founded company Advanced Accelerator Technologies AG (AAT), located in the new PARK innovAARE next to PSI, business development and operation on the basis of licensed PSI IP is undertaken to serve the scientific and industrial markets worldwide. This talk will cover TT examples, the cooperation between PSI and industry, and the perspective for such advanced accelerator technology to be industrialized and to be used for other accelerator projects & industrial applications.
