The transfer of research from laboratory to factory is the keystone of a healthy economy. BUE has embarked on this mission by launching two major projects, Technology, Innovation, and Commercialisation Office (TICO), and Science and Innovation Park (SIP). In both establishments, the industry and stakeholders, including people and government, are key players and partners.
