Overview of the Implementation Model
The TLP is bases on three tiers of integrated activity between the major role players. DST's role focuses on policy and strategy development, and the facilitation of high-level partnerships that are vital for the success of the TLP.
Central to the implementation is the role of the Technology Localisation Implementation Unit(TLIU), which has been established by the DST within the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research. Four main areas have been defined in the implementation model,each one requiring dedicated and specialist resources.
