As we head into the new year, now is a good time to revisit and prioritize tech transfer best practices—that is, efficiently and effectively moving technologies out of university, government, and even corporate labs and into the marketplace.

Happy reading, and contact Fuentek to learn more about how we can help your technology transfer office (TTO) apply them.

I recently had the pleasure of joining two of my Fuentek colleagues to present “Drafting Technology Listings for Marketing University IP.” Available now as a recording, this webinar provides practical tips and keen insights into this important element of the marketing toolbox for technology transfer offices (TTOs). Today I’d like to share with you some of the tips and tricks discussed during the webinar.
Learn best practices in getting the intellectual property (IP) portfolio under control at a webinar offered by the Association of University Technology Managers (AUTM)®. Streaming live on June 6, 2018, Prioritizing Your IP Portfolio provides a where-to-start strategy for optimizing and prioritizing the IP portfolio. The presenters are René Meadors, Dr. Nichole Mercier, and Fuentek’s Laura Schoppe.
Fuentek has two webinars you won’t want to miss. Both focus on how to enhance the relationship between the researchers developing intellectual property (IP) and the technology transfer office (TTO) professionals tasked with protecting and commercializing it. Because by doing so, both departments can be more successful. The live webinars from summer 2017 were recorded and are available now.
This past summer saw quite a few news stories and commentary that we here at Fuentek think are worth reading for technology transfer offices (TTOs). One in particular — Daniel Isenberg’s “Do Startups Really Create Lots of Good Jobs?” — was considered all by itself. Today’s post provides even more grist for the tech transfer mill. Enjoy!
