The Technology Transfer and Exchange Network of the D-8 organization for Economic Cooperation countries Known as D-8 TTEN was initiated in 2012 in Dhaka, Bangladesh based on the ratification made at the third Industrial Ministers Meeting of the D-8 Member countries and its secretariat was established at Pardis Technology Park in the Islamic Republic of Iran. The aim of this effort was to develop cooperation among the D-8 member countries in the areas of technology transfer and to absorb advanced technologies and move towards knowledge based economy.
For the same purpose, the idea of awarding the “Technology Transfer Award” was suggested at the second supreme council of the network in Nigeria in 2015. It was ratified by the representatives of the D-8 member countries, supported by the Islamic Republic of Iran through the efforts of the Pardis Technology Park (D-8 TTEN Secretariat), in order to encourage D-8 member countries to have closer collaboration in the technology transfer process.
Based on its statute, at the 3rd TTA event hosted in Turkiye by the Scientific and Technological Research Institution of Turkiye (TUBITAk), the Technology Transfer Award (2022) will be offered (to each party of the winner technology transfer contract) by Secretary-General of the D-8 organization, and an appreciation plaque will be presented to the winning member country.
