The Technology Transfer Support Fund (TTSF) is a key element of the Higher Education Development in Pakistan Project supported by the World Bank and implemented by the Higher Education Commission (HEC). The TTSF is anticipated to support promising partnerships between academia and industry to facilitate the transfer of university developed technological research to industry and the commercial sector. The TTSF will provide funds to selected institutions based upon a competitive, peer-reviewed evaluation of proposals.
The TTSF seeks to support university technology research that has previously developed an existing prototype or an advanced model (or equivalent). The anticipated portfolio of TTSF projects will support higher education institutions across Pakistan to undertake research and development activities focused on technology transfer. TTSF projects are expected to develop products or services that are marketable and can generate positive cash flow.
