The Technology Transfer in Slovakia and Abroad conference is an annual event that was in 2017 organised by the Slovak Centre of Scientific and Technical Information in Bratislava in partnership with the Slovak Innovation and Energy Agency. The event is aimed at awareness-raising and facilitating knowledge and technology transfer at Slovak public academic institutions. 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 views on the activities and future of this alliance. Collaborative and contract research and consultations at academic institutions, and setting-up a spin-off company were two core topics discussed at both conference workshop intended for representatives of technology transfer offices and at the conference in 2017. A speech given by Dr Janouškovcová, the director of Technology Transfer Centre at Masaryk University in Brno (Czech Republic) was a valuable contribution to these topics. Winners from Pavol Jozef Šafárik University Košice, Technical University Košice and Slovak University of Agriculture Nitra were awarded the Technology Transfer in Slovakia Award 2017, which acknowledges the most successful inventors, technologies and collaboration in technology transfer protection from the public academic institutions. A team of inventors from the Technical University Košice was awarded the conference participant´s Most Attractive Poster award.
