13th International Technology Transfer Conference 8th – 9th of October, Ljubljana (JSI), Slovenia
Center for Technology Transfer and Innovation (CTT), at the Jožef Stefan Institute (JSI), will be hosting a 13th International Technology Transfer Conference, between 8th – 9th of October 2020, in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
Main objective is to promote knowledge exchange between academia and industry, in order to strengthen the cooperation and transfer of innovations from research labs into industrial exploitation. Our goal is also further strengthening the knowledge base and experiences of technology transfer professionals at public research organisations.
In the past events, we hosted more than 2500 participants, including investors, inventors, researchers, commercialization experts, start-up funders, industrial development experts etc. We have successfully organized several competitions to award the technology with the best business proposition, which led to successful start-ups and licensing contracts. Biannually we organise Research-2-Business pre-scheduled meetings in order to give the participants additional opportunity to meet and discuss possible cooperation. Researchers presenting their work being financed by Slovenian Research Agency (ARRS) is another channel for enterprises to get familiar with recent discoveries and development opportunities.
- Conference prize for the best innovation in 2020
- At the conference, a special prize for innovations from public research organizations in 2020 will be awarded. The emphasis of the competition is on presentation of business propositions of your (early stage technologies) in front of the evaluation commission, which is constituted of investors and technology commercialization experts. The commission members will evaluate the commercial potential of the presented technologies and will award the teams with the highest commercial potential of their invention/innovation.
