Centre for Transfer of Biomedical Technologies was founded in 2012 at the University Hospital Hradec Králové as a joint commercialization office for researchers of Teaching Hospital, University of Hradec Králové and Faculty of Military Health Sciences, University of Defense. The mission of CTBT is to protect the intellectual property of all participating institutions, transferring the outcomes of R&D to the market and negotiating and contract research.
CTBT‘s responsibilities include management of legal protection of new technologies streaming from research and development in the form of patents, utility models or classified know-how. In this area we provide both administrative and legal support, we carry out patent and non patent literature searches.
CTBT‘s main goal is successful conduction of the commercialization activities of the intellectual property, eg. licensing patents or launching spin-off companies. In this way we provide researchers with both the administrative and legal and business development assistance. We directly search for a suitable investor or business partner that might be interested in licencing the technology and we negotiate licensing terms.
CTBT is one-stop contact point for businesses seeking a research partner and intend to assign contract research task. CTBT assists the researchers to build and arrange appropriate conditions of contract research with commercial partners. Due to the extensive network of contacts, CTBT facilitates the cooperation with companies that are interested to participate in the cooperative research schemes on the topics of expertis of our research teams. CTBT representatives regularly participate in trade fairs and conferences, which promote research and development of all partner institutions.
