The primary role of technology transfer at the Institute of Technology, Tralee is to promote collaborative research focused on delivering innovative solutions to our industrial partners in order to promote competitiveness and new job creation. IT Tralee works closely with University of Limerick (UL) Technology Transfer Office (TTO) to identify publically funded research which has the potential to be commercialised.
The TTO advises on how to maximise the rewards of bringing new inventions to market for public use and benefit. Please contact the IT Tralee Technology Transfer Officer below if you are interested in collaborating with IT Tralee researchers or have any technology transfer queries.
