This comprehensive study tour was part of a continuing process of identifying and analyzing successful TT models worldwide, this time focusing on top universities/research institutions in Asia. The study tour also aimed at positioning the KIT in an international network of TTOs and meeting important valorization partners. The insights gained complemented previous experiences made in North America, helping KIT to benchmark its TT practices and structures against leading institutions in dynamically growing Asian regions. The itinerary encompassed 12 universities and research organizations as well as 3 science parks in Kyoto, Tokyo, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Singapore
