The Technology Transfer Office (TTO) is the management division within the WRC which is responsible for technology transfer.

The purpose of this website is to provide a guide to all Contractors – Research Managers and the public - to the Water Research commission's approach to the translation of their research into useful products and services. The intent is for this site to provide a perspective on the WRC’s overall philosophy towards inventions, commercialization and relationships with communities.

As with any good website, this is a constant work in progress.
