As the university is enhancing its approach towards turning its innovative intellectual output into societal and economic value and impact, a new office - Intellectual Property and Technology Transfer Office (IPTTO) - has been established this academic year to offer help and support to the NU faculty community with their Innovation leads throughout the commercialization cycle.   

The IPTTO enhances university–industry collaboration by establishing links between researchers and industry to commercialize inventions. Our team possesses the skills and tools to evaluate the market potential for faculty inventions, how to pursue Egypt and worldwide IP protection, and how to identify business partners that can help university inventions be commercialized. During its short life, the IPTTO team has been actively working with many of our faculty to roadmap their IP commercialization path. 


Turning Nile University’s innovative intellectual output into economic and societal value and impact. 


Intellectual Output Sources

  • Faculty members
  • Research centers (CIS, WINC, NISC, SECS)
  • Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Competitiveness Centre (IECC)
  • Students and graduation projects (when faculty members contribute to the intellectual development of the project and are willing to continue)


Intellectual Property Rights

The valorisation process enables Nile University to protect, add value to and transform intellectual output into products, processes, services, or innovative and economically viable forms of technology duly protected by Intellectual Property Rights (IPR).
