Successfully moving technology from research to the marketplace by unifying and educating technology transfer professionals around the world.


The Alliance of Technology Transfer Professionals (ATTP) is the international body for professionals engaged in technology transfer (TT).

The transfer of discoveries and knowledge from academic research into the marketplace is recognized globally as paramount to building and sustaining a robust and innovative world economy. The professionals who work across continents to facilitate this transfer are as diverse as the cultures they represent. They must, however, have a common core skill set to manage the complex set of challenges that technology transfer presents.

ATTP was established to recognize and promote individuals with these core competencies and to provide approved training for individuals wishing to acquire these skills and become Registered Technology Transfer Professionals (RTTP).

The RTTP program reflects the highest quality expectations defined by the profession and will provide individuals wishing to acquire these skills the opportunity to be recognized as Registered Technology Transfer Professionals.

The next submission deadline is 23 July. Apply today!
