“ODTU – TTO Technoloy Transfer Office” is a structure created to support both university-industry collaboration and technology-based entrepreneurship. During the commercialization of the knowledge generated in academia, from patenting to incorporation, both the financial and managerial processes are executed by ODTU TEKNOKENT, on behalf of the academicians.
ODTU TTO coordinates the patenting processes of the academicians’ scientific findings and subsequently supports the incorporation of spin-off enterprises. As of the end of 2016, more than 230 national and international applications were realised and out of these 230 more than 150 national and international patents were achieved. ODTU TTO received its first Triadic Patent in 2013 and has 3 Triadic Patents in its portfolio today.
