Technology transfer and commercialization

Technology transfer is the key component to facilitate access to technology and knowledge. In most cases commercialization strategy using approaches such as reverse engineering, leasing, franchising and outright sales are expected to be used to facilitate the transfer. The source of technology for commercialization depends on the output from local R&D institutions. SIDO is promoting research into use and is expecting to offload research results to be used by the SMEs or transfer to the market for commercial production and social economic transformation. This process facilitates uploading proven technologies from R&D institutions to enterprises capable of producing them in big quantities and ensuring their availability to end users.
