Since 2013, CRDF Global has worked closely with the World Bank, IC² Institute at the University of Texas, and Exoventure Associates, LLC to create a new technology commercialization center (TCC) in Kazakhstan and to ensure the center’s sustainability by building the capacity of its staff. Since the establishment of the TCC, the project has been able to support 33 grant-based projects in a diverse array of industries, including pharmacogenomics, robotics, oil and gas, and IT.
