IFIA Technology Transfer Brokerage Department
IFIA Members are authorized to establish IFIA Technology Transfer Offices (TTOs) in IFIA member states. TTOs work under the supervision and guidance of the Technology Transfer Secretariat (TTS), situated in the IFIA Secretariat, to meet the requirements of the Technology Transfer Center (TTC). TTC branches supervise the activities of TTOs regionally. IFIA may found TTC branches in specialized fields such as electronics, computer, etc which is possible in case the members working in special areas send IFIA Secretariat a request in this regard. If IFIA has several members in one country, then one of the members can be in charge of TTO upon the approval of Executive Committee members, and the remaining members are expected to cooperate with their national TTO.

IFIA President Message
Since the inception of its activities, IFIA has struggled to disseminate the culture of invention and innovation, and to make the public aware of the importance of inventors for the welfare of society without them it is impossible to keep up with the fast-evolving and modern technologies. IFIA has done its best to achieve the goals and objectives that have been set for it during these 50 years. It has tried to help the inventors and to present the culture of the invention to everyone around the world. Another goal that IFIA has not ceased to strive for is to contribute to the public welfare and commercialization of inventions that have emerged because of great efforts. In this context, I am pleased to announce that the IFIA Global Technology Transfer Brokerage Department (ICCD) has started its activities. As we all know, commercialization is the general problem of world entrepreneurs & inventors. The commercialization & licensing negotiations, which are carried out in the internal dynamics of each country, enter a vicious circle after a certain period and eventually become blocked. ICCD offers the inventions to world investors and producers through its regional offices, and while doing this, it provides to inventors with one-on-one consultancy on all kinds of intellectual property issues they need.
Thanks to the network created in more than 160 countries, regional office teams can review inventions and match inventors with the relevant investor and manufacturers of their region. ICCD does not only offer to inventors the opportunity to meet investors & producers. It gives consultancy to them on all relevant issues they need, educates, and makes them ready for investors and manufacturers. To benefit from the largest commercialization brokerage network in the world, you can immediately contact the “IFIA Technology Transfer Brokerage Department Secretariat” and I would like to state that Mr. Koray ŞAHİN from Turkey has been appointed as department coordinator. The world is not as big as you think. I recommend you join the ICCD program and explore the World Invention and Innovation Commercialization Ecosystem.
