Technology Transfer & Commercialisation

Technology Transfer & Commercialisation

Technology transfer is the process of transferring scientific findings or technologies developed at ASTRI to the industries for the purpose of further development and/or commercialisation. It can be done through technology licensing, contract services, Industry Collaborative Project and other legal means.

The process of technology transfer & commercialisation typically includes:

  • Identifying new technologies
  • Protecting technologies through intellectual property rights (e.g. patents and copyrights)
  • Utilising various development and commercialisation means such as licensing to enable technology transfer to private sector companies

The following table shows the number of technology transfers to different industries through various channels in the past three fiscal years.
