The evolution of technology transfer in Ireland 2006-2016: a practitioner's perspective

The purpose of this paper is to share the experience of the development of Technology Transfer in Ireland from the perspective of a Technology Transfer Director who set up the first Tech Transfer Office (TTO) in the Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) in 2007, just as Ireland was about to enter an economic downturn and later set up TTOs in five other Institutes in Dublin as Ireland began its recovery.
