The 2022 Technology Transfer Boot Camp will be held Aug. 8-12.
Tech Transfer Boot Camp is aimed at scientists and students interested in what it takes to commercialize a new invention or discovery. The week-long event can also jump-start an alternate career in science as a technology transfer professional.
The program helps scientists gain a wide range of skills and experience that match their scientific knowledge and training.
Boot Camp focuses on several key areas relevant to a successful career in technology transfer, including:
- Invention evaluation
- Intellectual property law
- Marketing and commercialization
- Contract negotiation
