KZNROTT Website and Technology Database
Information about the KZNROTT is hosted on the UKZN IPTTO website. It is projected that by the first half of 2015 the website will have the database of technologies in each regional institution. It is envisaged that the database would further promote collaboration on the technology level within regional institutions. The database will also be used by our partners to identify technologies of interest (eg KZNDED).
