Strategic goal

The creation and implementation of a national infrastructure to support the technology transfer resulting from research and development in economic and social practices. The national system will support those R&D activities that respond to the needs of the business sector. As a consequence, an increased number of achievements in R&D and innovation and technologies will be put into practice. The project will facilitate the creation of long-term partnerships between the academic and business sectors and will contribute to the sustainable development of the whole of society.

The Technology Transfer Centre will be established at the SCSTI to ensure that the support for technology transfer is systematic at the national level. As part of the National System for Supporting Technology Transfer (NSPTT), the National Portal for Technology Transfer - NPTT is operated within the framework of the national project implementation. The NPTT is a website where all the important ongoing information in technology transfer in Slovakia can be found and it is also the site from which expert support services, relating to the process of technology transfer provided to academic and research organisations, can be accessed.
