Small TTO: Making a Little Go a Long Way! (6/2013)

Our speakers will explore effective practices of small technology transfer offices (TTO), and explain how every office can learn from their experiences. Topics discussed will include: What does it take to start a TTO? Why establish a TTO at a university that has limited research funding, or no medical or engineering school? What is the investment required, and when (if ever) might the office become self-supporting? Should it try to become self-supporting? What commercialization opportunities have smaller offices discovered that larger offices may be overlooking? What are the new models for providing shared resources to emerging TTOs? Join us for this enlightening conversation.
