MAKATI CITY - The Our Lady of Fatima University (OLFU), through its Research Development and Innovation Center (RDIC), was present at the Knowledge and Technology Transfer Office (KTTO) Huddle Workshop. Organized by the United States Agency for Development (USAID) and RTI International, the seminar was held last October 2-4, 2017.
Michell Katrina Gonong and Jueliand Peter Perez, research specialists from RDIC, attended the event which focused on the third module of the workshop series: Connect. The event was facilitated by RTI international KTTO experts, Jamie Parker and Jim Redden. The said module discussed about commercializing existing assets of a university through knowledge and technology transfer.
A KTTO serves as the interface between the talent and technology housed in the academic institute and the broader community. It also facilitates new relationships and partnerships resulting in research and technology development which, in turn, fuels local, regional, and national economies.
The KTTO Huddle Workshop series is under the Science, Technology, Research, and Innovation for Development (STRIDE) program. This is a five-year initiative by the USAID which aims to spur inclusive economic growth by boosting science and technology research.
