The Centre of Knowledge Transfer and Industrial Networks (PIJI) is a PTJ originally formed from the merging of two PTJs, the Research Networks Centre ECER (PJP ECER) and the Innovation and Knowledge Transfer Centre (PIPI). Since 15 November 2014, PIJI has set out to achieve its mission of being a champion in the knowledge transfer and industry networking for coastal communities.
Therefore, the agreed-upon and guiding objectives of PIJI include:
- To be the reference centre and coordinator for university-academia collaboration and community engagement in coastal communities; and
- To foster and leverage smart partnerships with industries and communities locally and globally.
