Office of University-Industry Linkage


Until recently the tasks of university industry linkage and technology transfer were performed under the Directorate of Community Service and Technology Transfer. Accordingly, the Office of University-Industry Linkage was named as Technology Transfer and University Industry Linkage Office functioning under Community Service and Technology Transfer Directorate.
