SIG-6 Metrics Successful Practices

Target Audience: All Audiences
Co-facilitators: Kevin E. Cullen, Ph.D., University of Glasgow
Shawn A. Hawkins, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

AUTM collects valuable metrics to allow technology transfer offices to compare themselves with their counterparts, but there is still a need to find useful metrics of success that can be communicated to stakeholders within and outside the university; examples of these non-AUTM metrics might include jobs created and capital attracted by spinouts, number of drugs approved, or number of products in the marketplace. In this session, speakers will discuss the metrics they’ve found to be most useful in conveying the value of technology transfer activities to university administration, state government and the business community, as well as strategies for gathering and communicating these metrics.
