Risk is something tech transfer professionals live with every day – compliance risk, COI risk, legal risk, underfunding and understaffing risks, infringement risk, start-up failure risk, licensee noncompliance risk, and many others – some easily defined and others that might not be obvious but can still have a negative impact on your TTO’s performance and results.

The key to managing and mitigating these risks is to identify, track, and measure progress toward resolving them while ensuring they are communicated transparently to both staff and administration, making the entire team accountable in an open, non-threatening, and systematic way. That’s exactly what The Ohio State University TCO has done, creating a risk analysis tool that has proved itself to be a critical aid in the office’s operation and management. Now OSU leadership is ready to share the risk tracking and mitigation system in this detailed webinar: Case Study of the Ohio State University’s Technology Commercialization Office’s Risk Analysis Tool, scheduled for June 2, 2022. 

Attendees will learn the details of the tool’s scoring and risk prioritization system, how risks are identified, categorized, and tracked, how mitigation efforts can impact risk scores, and how the risk analysis — and its communication throughout the TTO and beyond — brings a community effort to bear on critical problems and solutions.
