Through the Technology Transfer Day Project, the StARTT or the “Strategy to Accelerate and Revitalize Technology Transfer” was funded in 2020 to understand the current state of technology transfer and provide a venue to support and deliver new locally-developed technologies and inventions to the general public.
The Technology Transfer Day Project is implemented by the Technology Application and Promotion Institute of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST-TAPI) to fast-track the commercialization of government-funded technologies through licensing and adoption agreements.
