Capacity Building & Knowledge Transfer Programme

Knowledge Transfer Programme – PlaTCOM Ventures

 As the national technology commercialisation platform of Malaysia, PlaTCOM plays a key role in training and developing our technology transfer professionals. Our goal is for relevant parties (technology transfer managers (TTM), researchers, companies etc.) to obtain invaluable knowledge on the entire technology transfer process, from evaluating technology opportunities to negotiating licenses and forming spinout companies, and thereby to learn technology transfer best practices. It is envisaged that through our carefully designed training modules, participants are empowered to use their skills in a way, which addresses their own self-identified developmental needs.

PlaTCOM delivers knowledge-based training modules on technology/knowledge transfer and commercialisation by combining a thorough, professional course pack with well-experienced training consultants.

Our knowledge transfer programme covers a wide range of training modules that cover everything from invention disclosures, to intra-organisational marketing, to opportunity screening, assessment and more.

The programme aims to instill the best business practices for technology transfer, valuation and licensing. This helps innovators and developers to navigate the complexities of trading and sharing information and other intellectual property. We even provide training for negotiation and business planning to cover all of your bases.

All of our training courses are designed to meet our customer's unique requirements. Let us help you protect your intellectual property and connect with businesses that will help you grow and develop your own business strategies.
