Cooperation with practice
The transfer of acquired knowledge from the field of basic research into practice is ensured within the TBU in Zlín through the Technology Transfer Centre (TTC), which was founded in 2008 as a specialized workplace for cooperation with the application sphere and the transfer of research and development (R&D) results, and which is integrated into the organizational structure of the University Institute of TBU in Zlín. Ensuring the industrial legal protection of R&D results and the implementation of the necessary steps leading to their commercialization is the subject of this specialized workplace at TBU. The development of TTC activities and services is in line with the needs of the region and regional partners and contributes to ensuring the functional transfer of the results of applied research activities into practice. In addition, TTC is an important link between TBU and industrial practice thanks to specialized services in the field of industrial legal protection, which it provides not only internally for TBU, but also for industrial entities – external partners or other interested parties, when it comes to providing consultations, processing research and assessments.
In 2022, a new possibility of cooperation with the application sphere was cooperation within the projects of the Technological Agency of the Czech Republic (GAMA 2, Epsilon, Théta), the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic, EU Structural Funds – OP VVV, the Junior Grants Competition of TUB in Zlín (JUNG) .
