Transfer of technology is a trade between creating a technological innovation and wanting to use it without bothering to create the same technology. Transfer of technology can be between companies that develop technology and those who want to use it, it can also be between universities that develop technology and companies that implement that technology.
There may be different people who produce and use a technology. For example, “Bluetooth technology” that enables data communication in electronic devices was developed by Ericsson, a Swedish company, and is used by many companies with technology licenses. One of the best examples of technology being produced in universities and commercialized in industry is Google search engine. Technology transfer is an income gateway for technology producing companies or institutions, and a tool used to reach the result in a short time and cheap for users.
Good management of technology transfer processes in companies requires a distinct patent expertise. It requires measuring the value of the technology to be transferred, and very good management of transfer negotiations and agreements for the benefit of the company.
In the management of technology transfer transactions in universities, directing the university to the right projects, finding suitable companies from the market for the projects produced and transfer agreements again require a different patent expertise.
KORDINAT, with its technology transfer consultancy service, ensures that the patented products and technologies are rented from both universities and companies and commercialized by manufacturers.
