2017 Technology Transfer Program

Technology Transfer Program 

The Technology Transfer Program includes a Keynote presentation, a Technology Transfer Tutorial and a Pitch Panel.

The Technology Transfer Tutorial provides attendees an opportunity 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.

The Pitch Panel provides entrepreneurs an opportunity to showcase their technology, explain why it's valuable and discuss the next steps to commercialization.

The free space is available on a first-come, first served basis. Please email to request an application, which will be reviewed and approved by CLEO management and the CLEO Technology Transfer Program Committee.
