2018 Technology Transfer Program

Technology Transfer Program

Thursday, 17 May
Exhibit Hall Theater I

10:15 - 13:00

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.
