What We Do : Increasing Technology Transfer Capacity

The ITTI mission is to help improve the marketplace distribution of technology in countries with low market flow. ITTI focuses on helping academic and governmental research organizations build TTO intermediaries to manage both the acquisition of proprietary knowledge to augment technology development and the transfer of new technologies to the marketplace once they are developed. Providing the education and training necessary to build TTO intermediaries is a major part of ITTI’s program.


What We Do: Patent Landscape Analyses

Patent landscape analyses identify patent literature (both patents and patent applications) that might be relevant to a particular biotechnological application, whether in agriculture or in health, and whether single component or complex construct. ITTI, as a pioneer in patent landscape analyses for developing countries, explores and maps new frontiers. ITTI provides a better understanding of the patent landscape in developing countries for innovative advances in health and agriculture.

Conventional analysis routinely addresses patent constraints that arise in developed countries, such as the United States, the European Union and Japan. However, for developing countries such conventional techniques are insufficient.
