Alliance members will deeply integrate blockchain technology with international technology transfer. Through machine trust, smart contract, and intellectual property tokenization, innovative resources will be converged, trust mechanisms will be built, and risks will be diluted. A strong guarantee will be provided for the future benefit of all contributors to technology transfer, and a new paradigm of shared economic international technology transfer with the free participation of the public will be created. Further marketization of scientific and technological innovation following on from the Bayh-Dole Act will be realized. The Alliance is determined to open up a new situation of technology transfer on a global scale and to occupy the ‘commanding heights’ of the innovation economy.
At the same time, the Alliance will give full play to the liaison role of international technology transfer brokers in China, organize and excavate the team of technology transfer brokers in universities, enterprises, incubators, venture capital, and other innovative chains, so as to provide strong support for innovation-driven development.
