Partnering with researchers, the Industry Development and Knowledge Transfer (IDKT) office makes the most of QF discoveries by protecting them, finding their place in the market, and licensing them to established companies and startups. We are also cultivating an innovation culture by recognizing and rewarding QF researchers.
Using our online system to file your invention disclosure starts the process for maximizing the value and impact of your research. We examine the commercial potential for your innovation and identify the best option for protecting the intellectual property (IP) and pursuing commercialization.
QF researchers interested in launching a startup based on their discoveries can tap into a wealth of support offered by IDKT and our innovation ecosystem partners, including Qatar Science & Technology Park (QSTP). We can help you understand and prepare for the challenges of entrepreneurship, empowering you to be successful in pursuing your new venture.
We offer a variety of resources to help you learn the various processes associated with technology commercialization. These tools will help you engage effectively with IDKT and your industry partners.
We introduce you to external partners and work with you to define the right form of collaboration, such as sponsored research, consulting, fees-for-service support, or sharing data.
We partner with you and participate with industry throughout the process, serving as a valuable liaison to form a win-win relationship. Questions? Contact us
