The Centre for Technology Commercialisation (CTC) is dedicated to stimulate the needs of the country’s key stakeholders in harnessing technology for wealth creation. Universities, research institutes, venture financiers, technopreneurs, intellectual property specialists, governmental regulators, researchers, business entities and industry players will come together at CTC to make technology commercialization a reality.
The CTC offers advisory and consultancy services in facilitating technology transfer, R&D commercialization, project management, strategic IP management advice, market research and opportunity analysis as well as professional development programs to increase commercial potential of projects.
CTC is working with the Innovation and Commercialization Division of MOSTI towards the commercialization of products developed through R&D activities sponsored by the Ministry, by way of MOSTI/TPM Products Commercialization Prospecting Sessions. CTC’s Project Monitoring Team (PMT) has also been appointed by MOSTI to manage and monitor grants given out under the Technofund, Sciencefund and Innofund grants. These grants are for the Biotechnology, Agriculture and Industry Clusters, to encourage development of new products for commercialization.
