Technology Transfer Tactics, January 2024

Technology Transfer Tactics

Technology Transfer Tactics is the world’s most widely read and respected independent publication for tech transfer professionals has been published monthly since it debuted in May 2007.

Its monthly issues offer unique, practical, and advanced strategies, case studies, best practices, and expert guidance on a broad range of challenges and opportunities for technology transfer offices and professionals. 

As the publication gained subscribers worldwide and became a must-read for its helpful, how-to content, TechPipeline added the free online publications Tech Transfer eNews and Tech Transfer University Reporter, followed by a vibrant Distance Learning Division that now produces more than 30 interactive webinars each year.

Distance Learning Division

Tech Transfer Central’s Distance Learning Division produces 2-3 live webinars each month and has compiled an archive that includes hundreds of recorded programs. The webinars are expert-led, detailed explorations of topics that are relevant to the tech transfer and related communities.

Access to a complete searchable archive of all past and upcoming programs is available through Tech Transfer Central’s All Access Pass.

Books, Reports, and Tools

The Tech Transfer Book of Best PracticesSoon after launching the Distance Learning Division, the company began creating books and reports — including its popular Best Practices books — as well as partnering with other information providers so that a broad array of resources for tech transfer, licensing, legal, and other professionals could be offered in one place.

These resources include royalty rate and IP valuation references, patent law guidebooks, valuation and technology assessment software and tools, market research reports, TTO benchmarking resources, certification programs, directories, and databases among others.

University-Industry Engagement Advisor

In early 2017, Industry-Sponsored Research Management was released. This monthly newsletter was the first and only publication devoted to helping to expand and expertly manage this increasingly critical aspect of the university’s research enterprise.

After two-years of publishing Industry-Sponsored Research Management, we relaunched as University-Industry Engagement Advisor to better reflect the many aspects of holistic corporate partnership development while continuing to cover key issues and success strategies for forming and managing research collaborations.

A free weekly e-zine, University-Industry Engagement Week, was concurrently launched as an online companion to the newsletter.

A One-Stop Shop

Tech Transfer Central brings all these resources into one convenient location and indexes them by both product type and topic, so if you are looking for guidance in a specific subject – say faculty outreach or IP valuation – you can easily find all our products that will help.

The site also features weekly specials on selected resources, a searchable archive of our Tech Transfer eNews and University-Industry Engagement Week articles, and a free university-specific search engine of patents issued to universities.  

We invite you to explore the site, sign up to receive Tech Transfer eNews free, and make Tech Transfer Central a bookmarked destination for all your professional development and information needs.
