Platforma Transferu Technologii

Technology Transfer Platform (TTP) is a a website where registered users can provide information about their innovative resources and about needs in the field of innovation, as well as search the technologies and experts database.

  • the needs of so-called technology recipients i.e. entities interested in acquisition of innovative solutions,
  • expert resources, which can be used in the technology transfer process.

  • verification of market interest in technologies at the disposal of a given entity,
  • outsourcing of technologies outside the scope of the provider’s development strategy, which can be used in particular in a different industry,
  • making technology available to an entity cooperating with the provider (as a part of B2B relations), thereby improving the efficiency of mutual business relations,
