Nearly 25 percent of last year’s attendees told us in postconference surveys that they have attended seven or more annual meetings. 70 percent of attendees say they come back, year after year, primarily for the excellent networking opportunities. At the AUTM Annual Meeting, you’re not just visiting with old friends (although that happens too!); you’re meeting important business contacts and working deals.
The AUTM 2014 Annual Meeting will again feature our powerful online partnering and networking tool, AUTM ConnectTM, which enables attendees to create detailed profiles, search effortlessly for other attendees, send and receive messages, search for licensing and collaboration opportunities and schedule one-on-one meetings. At last year’s meeting, the partnering system hosted more than 1,600 attendee profiles representing more than 900 organizations and more than 11,000 technologies available for licensing. Learn more.
The AUTM Annual Meeting is organized and developed by experienced technology transfer professionals who represent a range of institutions—large and small universities, public and private, industry representatives, government agencies and hospitals and research institutions. Your colleagues work hard to ensure that the AUTM Annual Meeting includes timely, relevant sessions to help you succeed in technology transfer.
And, NEW this year, AUTM will provide each attendee with conference session recordings. Now you can experience AUTM 2014 Annual Meeting workshops and educational tracks wherever and whenever you want – captured as true multimedia recreations with synchronized slides, handouts and more – viewable online or as downloads in MP3 format for easy listening.
The deals you make and the training you receive at the AUTM Annual Meeting can help you prepare for increased responsibility or even your next position. Plus, attendance at the AUTM Annual Meeting will count toward your Certified Licensing Professional (CLP) and Registered Technology Transfer Professional (RTTP) designations as well as your continuing legal education.
This year AUTM is offering four mini-courses that will allow you to experience AUTM’s professional development programs free of charge. The mini-courses are 3 hours long, enough time for you to receive in-depth training and decide which subject areas you need to explore further. The mini-courses are free, but advance registration is required. Sign up early to secure your place. Learn more.
