Technology transfer is one of the ways of bringing innovations into practice. In this process, an academic institution provides its extensive knowledge in the given field to a commercial partner, who, on the other hand, brings experience from practice and provides funding for the project. It is a very complex process involving several steps. This process begins with the optimization of the research project and the protection of its intellectual property (IP). The optimal path of commercialization is then chosen for the project and a Contractual Agreement with the commercial partner is prepared.
At the Charles University, the R&D infrastructure in the so-called Innovation Ecosystem is adapted to this path of innovation. In this section, you can learn more about how Technology Transfer works, including practical advice and examples that can guide you correctly.
