Knowledge Transfer at the University of Mauritius

The University of Mauritius has set up a Knowledge Transfer Office (KTO) which aims to provide a strong link between the university, government, industry, and the broader community. This will increase the visibility of research conducted by academics and make it more accessible, a key part of Research Uptake Management (RUM), which is at the core of the DRUSSA Programme.

The KTO will act as a one-stop shop for the protection, exchange and commercialisation of knowledge created at the University of Mauritius, which includes technology, know-how, skill and expertise, for both commercial and non-commercial application. It will facilitate the showcasing of university expertise, experience and capacities and strengthen University-Industry-Community collaboration. It will play a central and pivotal role in linking researchers from all Faculties and Centres with the end users of the research, including communities, government and ministries, industry, and the media.
