The objective of this joint conference was to reflect the processes of knowledge and technology valorization in less developed countries and what it means for universities, policy makers and the business world. By its name the ICTIS – S2B 2018 aims to discuss and evaluate the four pillars of knowledge valorization consisting of technology, innovation, society, and related transfer processes.
