University of West Bohemia,
Department of Technology Transfer

Basic information

Knowledge and technology transfer at the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen (UWB) is coordinated by the Department of Technology Transfer (DTT). The department’s main activity is providing complex support to academicians, researchers and students with a goal to put into practice as many of their ideas, results and know-how as possible. It is a central department providing services to all nine faculties and their research centres. DTT takes care of the administration of intellectual property of UWB, monitors promising results or know-how and manages the process of their commercial application. Another objective of DTT is to maintain close cooperation with companies, partner institutions and experts from the private sector.

The University of West Bohemia (UWB) is the only public institution of higher education based in the Pilsen Region. Currently, it has 9 faculties with more than 60 departments and 2 academic institutions. More than 12,000 students can choose from a wide of range of undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral study programs. In addition to its educational activities, the University is also an important centre of research and development, making substantial investments in University development and construction activities on the University campus (e.g. the new buildings of the European Centre of Excellence NTIS and the Centre of Technical and Natural Science Education and Research literally). The newly constructed research centres will definitely strengthen the links between the University and the private sector. UWB holds an important position among universities both in the Czech Republic and in Europe. Our position within the European tradition of university education was recently strengthened by the ECTS Label (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System designation) which the University received in late 2012.
