Technology Transfer Company

TTC project

Looking at international practices, the basic element of a structure to support technology transfer processes could be a university-owned company responsible for the exploitation of the knowledge created in the institution, forming a bridge between the companies and the university. 

In order to ensure the necessary costs for the establishment of the TTC and its operation for 3 years (2024-2026), the State has provided HUF 500,000,000, i.e. HUF 500 million, in 2023 to 5 universities (University of Debrecen, Óbuda University, Semmelweis University, Széchenyi István University, University of Szeged). 

The NIÜ provides professional support for the 3-year implementation of the project, facilitates and monitors the operational implementation of the conditions, and monitors on a quarterly basis the achievement of the KPIs agreed in the TTC concept prepared jointly with the institutions within the framework of the project. The NIÜ provides various services to support the operation of the TTC offices. The staff of the universities and TTCs are in regular and proactive contact with the NIÜ staff. The NIÜ shares the experience and knowledge gained from the project with universities and research institutes not participating in the project.
