Technology transfer centres

Knowledge transfer centres facilitate our researchers to connect to innovating communities, to collaborate and find out about new opportunities in key research and technology sectors.

  1. Our centres improve business performance through innovation and new collaborations by driving the flow of people, knowledge and experience between business and the science-base;
  2. They drive knowledge transfer between the supply and demand sides of technology-enabled markets through a high quality, easy to use service;
  3. They provide business with the opportunity to meet and network with individuals and organisations, nationally and internationally.
