Takamul wins technology transfer award
Abu Dhabi, January 26, 2014
The Abu Dhabi Technology Development Committee’s (TDC) Takamul innovation support programme was awarded with the “Best National Intellectual Property and Technology Transfer Policy Award 2013.”
It was presented by the Licensing Executives Society International (LESI) at the LESI’s annual Global Technology Impact Forum held in Geneva recently.
A key strategic initiative of TDC, the Takamul national innovation support programme was created to enable the complete innovation cycle, from the domestic generation of ideas to the practical and commercial application of these ideas into products, solutions and services.
The programme focuses on two main areas: providing awareness, legal and financial support for intellectual property protection, and enabling the technology transfer and commercialization of IP both locally and internationally.
Ahmed Saeed Al Calily, director general of TDC, said said:“On behalf of TDC and the Takamul team, I am proud to receive this prestigious award. It is a testament to the success and quality of the initiative that we have been recognised for our efforts to support Abu Dhabi’s desire in becoming a knowledge-based economy”
The LESI National IP and Technology Transfer Policy Award is presented to an eligible government, non-government or professional association that contributes to the development and execution of policies to promote intellectual property (IP), licensing and the transfer of technology to spur sustainable and equitable economic growth for the benefit of humanity.
It recognises that entity which has distinguished itself in this regard whether for commercial or humanitarian purpose. Nominations for this award are driven by GTIF participants and the LES National Presidents’ Council.
“Now in its third year, Takamul is becoming a driving force behind the momentum of innovation and invention in science and technology and has expanded its support activities within the entire UAE, making it a national innovation programme,” Al Calily added. - TradeArabia News Service
