Welcome the New ITTC Network by Attending its Virtual Launch Event

The new International Technology Transfer Center (ITTC) Network develops and strengthens the workforce, organizations and systems that provide substance use prevention, treatment, and recovery support services across the world.

Much like ATTCs, ITTCs are based in universities and research centers, and they utilize a variety of strategies to accelerate the implementation of scientifically-based and culturally appropriate practices. ITTCs currently exist in South Africa, Ukraine and Vietnam, with more countries being added in the near future. These Centers are brought together in a coordinated network through the leadership of the ITTC Network Coordinating Office in partnership with the International Consortium of Universities on Drug Demand Reduction (ICUDDR).

An exciting and informative virtual event to officially launch the ITTC Network is scheduled for 8 a.m. CST, Feb. 24, 2021. All are welcome to attend and learn more about the ITTC model of technology transfer, hear about the experiences of the existing ITTCs, and meet the network’s leaders and key stakeholders.

The ITTC virtual launch event will be held in English with simultaneous translation into Spanish. To find out what time the virtual launch event begins in your city, use The Time Zone Converter:

Renowned implementation science expert Dean Fixsen, PhD, will serve as the keynote speaker for the virtual launch event.

The National Rehabilitation Centre (NRC) in Abu Dhabi is hosting this virtual event. The future home of United Arab Emirates ITTC, the NRC is already a leader in promoting the adoption and implementation of science-based prevention, treatment and recovery services in the UAE and throughout other parts of the Middle East. ICUDDR and the existing ITTCs are honored to include NRC in the ITTC Network.

Registration for the ITTC virtual launch event is now open via Zoom. You can also RSVP for the event on Facebook, and like and follow the ITTC Facebook page for updates and news from the network.
