Commercialization and cooperation with practice is a primary activity of TTC. TTC’s activities are focused on comprehensive services in the field of intellectual property protection and commercialization of protectable results, as well as on the internal recording and commercialization of non-protectable results (know-how, functional samples, verified technologies); the TCC provides also consulting and information support for license negotiations and conclusions. TTC also supports the commercialization of R&D results by participating in the realization of transfer projects at the national and international level. In addition, TTC directly represents the university in matters of industrial rights before the Czech Industrial Property Office (ÚPV CR), the European Patent Office (EPO), the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).
