Technology Transfer

It’s easier than it seems.

Our colleagues and experts in intellectual property protection and commercialization will guide you through the entire process of technology transfer from the beginning to the end: from the idea to its commercialization. We provide professional service and support to all faculties, departments and inventors at ctu. We can help you with intellectual property management, protection and application in the czech republic and abroad.

Successful commercializations

System for storing and managing safety data

Complexe software and methodology for storing and managing data in air travel based on ontological and conceptual framework.

More information

The Knowledge Management System is based on gathering and managing safety data using principles of ontological and conceptual framework. The startup AKAENE Partners, s.r.o. (Ltd) licensed this product (know-how) which originated as an interfaculty cooperation between the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and the Faculty of Transportation Sciences.

It´s significance is crucial in creating and evaluating system measures related to increase in safety in air travel. The research products are being used by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Czech Republic, Václav Havel Airport Prague and Czech Airlines Technics. The commercialization took the form of a non-exclusive license to use Industrial Property with CTU´s share in the benefits and potential sale/business investment.

Another collaboration with CTU is currently taking place under the terms of cooperative research. The AKAENE company expressed interest in signing another licensing agreement regarding software created under the cooperative research.

Asphalt mixture testing

The uniaxial shear tester for measuring asphalt mixtures can calculate the material characteristics of the tested asphalt mixture based on the deformation in a standard tester.

More information

The uniaxial shear tester for measuring asphalt mixtures was developed during a study course of an academia member from the Faculty of Civil Engineering at the University of California and the newly created intellectual property (patent) is shared by CTU and the previously mentioned university.

The device can calculate material characteristics of the tested asphalt mixture based on the deformation in a standard testing device.

The commercialization happened via the prototype sale including know-how support of the University of Waterloo in Canada. Negotiations about further sales and production in several other countries are currently taking place.

Mobile barriers

The mobile ballistic system enables a fast deployment and movement of highly resistant safety barriers used in zones of sudden or temporary safety risk.

More information

The mobile ballistic system based on a cementitious composite licensed to the company MOB-Bars, s.r.o. (Ltd) was developed in collaborative research with the Faculty of Civil Engineering. The system enables a fast deployment and movement of highly resistant safety barriers used in zones of sudden or temporary safety risk.

Testing of the prototypes takes place in cooperation with the Police and Army of the Czech Republic. The mobile barriers are already being used by the Police of the Czech Republic and the company ČEPS. They are also being used by the Army of the Czech Republic during the training of protection of critical infrastructure in Czech Republic. MOB-Bars is expanding into other countries: RSA, Colombia, Turkey, Guinea-Bissau, Burkina Faso and others.

The commercialization went through an exclusive license on further development with profit shares for CTU for the next three years. The MOB-Bars company´s research cooperation with CTU continues, its result being the creation of another intellectual property that the company is interested in licensing.

Our projects

CIPA

The international Czech-Israel Partnership Accelerator program outlines as much as possible the reality and actual demands of the contemporary business world to students. Student teams from two technical universities – CTU in Prague and Technion are working on solving real assignments from the industry under the leadership of experts taking on the role of mentors from commercial practice. The program supports students´ creativity, innovative approach and acquiring of business abilities.
