Brno University of Technology,
Technology Transfer Office

Basic information

The Technology Transfer Office (TTO) plays an important role in transferring knowledge in the university into practical use. The TTO is active especially in the following areas:

  • Support of cooperation between the university and businesses – TTO supports cooperation with businesses in form of contractual research or collaboration in domestic or international grant projects. With new contacts, the TTO works as the first contact point within the university which, after a preliminary analysis of the partner’s requirements, finds and recommends a suitable faculty research team to perform the task. For both new and established partnerships, the TTO offers legal advice on contractual and intellectual property issues.
  • Commercialising and marketing R&D results – TTO plays a very important role in assessing the inventions and technologies made by university researchers in terms of their practical applicability and possibilities for commercialisation.
  • Intellectual property protection

Brno University of Technology is the only comprehensive technical university in the South Moravian Region and an important academic institution of Central Europe. Apart from providing education in accredited fields and involvement in extensive scientific activities an ever greater role is played by the transfer of the unique ledge and technologies to businesses with the purpose of their commercial utilization. The university benefits from its very broad portfolio. Its eight faculties teach nearly all technical fields (civil engineering, mechanical engineering incl. aerospace, electrical engineering and communication technologies, information technologies, chemical engineering) as well as selected artistic fields of study (such as industrial design).
