At the 11th Plenary Meeting of the European Tech Transfer Office (TTO) Circle in Valbonne, France, TIV joins Top European Research Organizations to analyze the Use of Blockchain and Tech Transfer towards Scientific and Societal Progress.
In 2018, TIV’s Dr. Mirjana Stankovic presented at the 11th Plenary Meeting of the European TTO Circle. An initiative of the European Commission, the TTO circle is a network established with the aim to bring together the major public research organizations to share best practices, perform joint activities, and develop a common approach towards international standards for the professionalization of technology transfer. The symposium served as an assembly of 31 of the world’s greatest scientific ambassadors from institutions such as: CERN, the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA), Research Councils UK’s Science & Technology Facilities Council and Germany’s Max Planck Society. At the event hosted by le Centre Inria Sophia Antipolis – a center dedicated to the advancement of AI and its combinatory potential in fields such as neuroscience, bioinformatics and data modelling – Dr. Stankovic was part of a Roundtable on the Opportunities and Challenges, Barriers and Synergies of Blockchain, IP and Technology Transfer. The collaboration added to the efforts of similar continental initiatives to improve Europe’s global competitiveness, enhance the region’s economic position and solve some of the major societal challenges of the 21st century.
