Abstract

The global economy changes rapidly and makes cooperation between researchers indispensable for the successful completion of the various projects. Hence, the analysis of Technology Transfer in Academia is of paramount importance. In Greece, universities account for the majority of absorption of the research funds, at a time when industrial participation remains low. This paper describes the perspectives of the Industrial Liaison and Technology Transfer Office (ILTTO) of National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) based on data from internal sources. The paper concludes that the ILTTO should focus on encouraging young researchers and improving the linkages with the users of the research results.
