This report is the outcome of a UN-ESCWA Regular Program of Technical Cooperation Project on “Establishment of National Technology Transfer Offices (NTTO) in Sudan”. The project aims to enhance national innovation system capacity through updating related legislations, policies; and the establishment of National Technology Transfer Offices (NTTO) linked to universities and research institutions facilitating the partnership among the research community, economic development sector, industry, and relevant governmental actors. Starting in 2016, Innovation and Technology Transfer Landscape Map in Sudan is developed. Commissioned studies identified legislative gaps and needs in the national and institutional relevant policies with present challenges and opportunities. Additional targeted studies introduced recommendations towards addressing the weaknesses in such policies and legislations, in addition to proposing a road map towards effective implementation.
