Closing workshop to set up national technology transfer office

A workshop to close the project to set up a national technology transfer office in Tunisia started Monday in Tunis.

This project was initiated by the National Agency for the Promotion of Scientific Research (ANPR) in collaboration with the Technology Transfer Centre stemming from the UN Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA).

The project, funded by the United Nations to the tune of US $ 497,000, aims to establish a national network of technology transfer offices and strengthen the system of transfer and innovation at the Arab level.

It also seeks to reinforce partnership between academic institutions and industrial sectors and share successful experiences and practices between Arab and developed countries.

ANPR Director Khaled Ghedira said on the occasion that Tunisian experts had conducted five studies in order to devise a roadmap for the regulation needed to establish a constructive and effective national system of technology transfer.

He also pointed out that the only obstacle to the transfer of technology remains the absence of legislation that can frame and regulate the sector, however recommendations to that effect had been addressed to the Prime Ministry.

The workshop will discuss the most appropriate technology transfer strategy for Tunisia as well as the necessary legal framework for the integration of different technology transfer activities.
