The project aims at strengthening bilateral cooperation between Norway and the Czech Republic in technology transfer in universities. It will provide valuable opportunity to share expertise in knowledge and technology transfer and foster the development of joint educational modules of intellectual property and education of knowledge and technology transfer as an infrastructure for the large community. Knowledge and technology transfer (TT) between research institutions and enterprises significantly supports the development of innovation and thus contributes to the competitiveness of companies and regions. However, this process does not happen automatically, and therefore systematic support is needed.
Through research on each country's technology transfer ecosystem, improvement of intellectual property protection and technology transfer curricula for students and organization of bilateral events, the project will foster cooperation between technology transfer centres of both universities and scientists from both countries, improve cross-border access, knowledge and technology interconnection with R&D institutions and increase the likelihood of specific research cooperation involving start-up and spin-off companies and the scientific community.
