Oct. 24-26, 2011
The Nines Hotel
Portland, Oregon USA
The AUTM Essentials of Academic Technology Transfer Course (formerly known as the AUTM Basic Licensing Course) will provide an overview of the essential aspects of academic technology transfer. This course is designed for individuals who are new to technology transfer in an academic environment. The course will bring individuals from diverse backgrounds and levels of experience to a common understanding of the fundamental goals and objectives of academic technology transfer and build skills and resources necessary to function effectively in the field. The workshops are designed to follow the lifecycle of invention disclosure by faculty through the university process, ultimately resulting in licensing to established companies and startups, while highlighting the differing perspectives, issues and concerns between industry and academia. Presentations will cover essential aspects of public, intellectual property and contract law related to evaluation, marketing and commercialization of early stage technologies developed at academic and non-profit organizations.
