Knowledge Transfer Ireland -

The mission of Knowledge Transfer Ireland (KTI) is to support business and the research base to maximise innovation from State funded research by getting technology, ideas and expertise into the hands of business, swiftly and easily for the benefit of the public and the economy.

The Knowledge Transfer Ireland web portal provides an overview of Ireland's research landscape and also enables users to obtain a detailed picture of the research capabilities of the country's universities, institutes of technology and other major research centres. The web portal provides commercial enterprises and public sector entities with a single powerful resource to leverage the potential of Irish research and innovation.

Drawing on multiple databases, the portal provides:

A step-by-step guide explains what can be expected throughout the interaction process and is supported by check-lists and questionnaires to help prepare for meetings with the TTOs and researchers.

A series of KTI Practical Guides to contracts have been designed to make the process of contracting between business and the research base simple and understandable.

The portal hosts a suite of Model Agreements including:

  • Confidential Disclosure Agreement
  • Model Licence Agreement (exclusive and non-exclusive)
  • Model Option Agreement
  • Model Evaluation Agreement
  • Model Material Transfer Agreement
