Website design, content and maintenance can be a full-time job in a tech transfer office! There is so much involved from posting the latest exciting news to the TTO website and social media pages as well as checking to make sure the content and information appears accurately on your TTO website. Many also have a Tech Alert email service that notifies interested parties of your latest and greatest technologies available for licensing as well as a RSS feed, Facebook, Twitter and other social media pages. There is always troubleshooting to be done in regard to exports of HTML and other data from our database so that your website displays the information on the “Technologies Available for Licensing” page properly and tools available that can help you pull new technologies from your RSS feed to post to the your social media feeds. Come join us as we discuss cool tools for doing this important job!
