About TTU

In 2016, icipe re-launched its Technology Transfer Unit (TTU), which is aligned to the Centre’s Vision and Strategy 2013 – 2020. TTU presents a platform for synchronised, sustainable and visible technology dissemination. The Unit builds on pilot technology dissemination projects by icipe and partners, to scale them out for enhanced impact. TTU also strengthens cross-linkages between icipe, farmers, researchers, donors, enterprises and policymakers, facilitating better processes for providing information and advice, testing and improving technologies, capacity building, innovative project development and business incubation.

The Technology Transfer Unit is being incubated within the Push-Pull Sub-Saharan Africa project, funded by Biovision Foundation for Ecological Development, Switzerland.
