Thursday 12 June 2014
Exhibit Hall Session Area

New this year, the Technology Transfer Program will include a Pitch Panel for entrepreneurs to showcase their technology, explain why it is valuable and discuss the next steps to commercialization.  In addition, the program will continue to provide a Tutorial for those that want to learn more about the licensing process – funding, entrepreneurship, technology transfer and intellectual property. In addition, organizations will feature their license ready technologies at tabletop displays in the exhibit hall.
 

Tabletop Display – FREE for Organizations to Present License Ready Technologies

A designated space near the Program area will be reserved for tabletops for interested organizations to showcase license ready technologies.  The free space is available on a first come, first serve basis. Please email corporate@osa.org to request an application, which will be reviewed and approved by CLEO management and the CLEO Technology Transfer Program Committee.
