In 2016, Technology Transfer in Slovakia and Abroad, an annual conference, was organised by the Slovak Centre of Scientific and Technical Information in Bratislava in partnership with the Industrial Property Office of the Slovak Republic. The event is aimed at awareness-raising and facilitating knowledge and technology transfer at Slovak public higher education as well as research and development institutions. The representatives of technology transfer offices established at these institutions are invited to present their activities in industrial property protection, technology transfer and commercialisation of technologies. Members of the Slovak National Technology Transfer Centre give their opinion on the work and future of this alliance. In 2016, proof-of concept funding was the main topic for lectures given by invited guests from abroad – Claudia Doubek, a technology transfer expert at the Technical University in Vienna (Austria) and Dagmar Vávrová, Director of technology transfer office at the Technical University in Brno (Czech Republic). An integral part of the event is the conference workshop which was dedicated to the current status and the future of technology transfer in Slovakia as perceived by the top research and innovation managers at the S&T-most intensive academic institutions – the Slovak Academy of Sciences, Slovak University of Technology Bratislava and Žilina University. The highlight of the Conference was the Technology Transfer in Slovakia Award 2016 which acknowledges the most successful inventors, technologies and collaboration in technology transfer from public academic institutions. Creative and inventive activities of researchers, which are displayed in the Poster section in the course of the conference, and the authors of the most attractive poster are awarded the valuable prize. Information in English about oral presentations and posters can be found in Book of Abstracts TTSZ 2016.
