Consortium for technology transfer from PRO to the economy (KTT)

Consortium for technology transfer from public research organizations to companies

The purpose of the Consortium for Technology Transfer from Public research organizations to companies (KTT) is to encourage the strengthening of links and cooperation between public research organizations and the economy and to strengthen the competencies of Technology Transfer Offices (TTOs), researchers and companies. One of the key goals of KTT is to strengthen the commercialization of already developed scientific solutions and stimulate demand and strengthen development competencies. This encourages the process of transferring scientific discoveries from the public research organizations to companies with a view to further development and commercialization, which means transfer to the public benefit and economic use to increase social welfare and influence the creation of new value. Thus, already developed technologies become more accessible to the general public and economic entities, moreover, we present in more detail the activities of knowledge and technology transfer, consortium and partner activities, bring together all stakeholders in the process of knowledge and technology transfer and offer a joint overview of Slovenian public research organizations offers for companies.
