On April 18-19, 2013, CRDF Global/Georgian Research and Development Foundation (GRDF) and Shota Rustaveli National Science Foundation (SRNSF) were held a two-day Technology Commercialization Practicum at Holiday Inn, Tbilisi.
The focus of the practicum was to assist Georgia’s leading research institutions and universities in becoming vibrant centers for development and commercialization of advanced technologies. It provided participants with practical information about technology commercialization pathways and equipped them with strategies for designing the most effective approach (locally & internationally) to technology transfer.
In addition to gaining exposure to international best practices, participants will also have the opportunity to take part in an essay/case study competition for a Travel Grant to the United States. Essays and case studies may draw upon information learned at the practicum, and should be submitted electronically by May 31, 2013.
