Valorization is one of the areas of RTU activity laid out in the university strategy. It implies commercialization of the products developed at the university and promotion, patenting, and launch of results of applied research.

The following units coordinate the valorization process:

1. Technology and Knowledge Transfer Centre is responsible for protection and management of intellectual property, development of technology transfer, support for RTU scientists in valorization activities and collaboration with local and international partners.

The center manages the UseScience database and AVS (high-performance computing).
