Technology transfer is a complicated process that involves many moving parts, and the unfortunate fact of life for many TTOs is that many faculty researchers just don’t get it — and don’t trust it.

But there is a bright side: When effective outreach is employed, researchers who are well-versed in the tech transfer process are more likely to disclose higher quality IP that leads to a license or start-up company than their counterparts. Likewise, having well-grounded TTO staff that can support PIs in a way that safeguards the university’s and researcher’s interests makes the path to commercialization that much more successful.

In short, teaching faculty and staff about the commercialization process — what to expect, what their role is, and why some innovations make it and some don’t — is paramount. When it comes to engaged researchers and effective staff support, knowledge is power.

That’s why our Distance Learning Division has partnered with tech transfer veteran Joe Runge, JD, Business Development Manager with UNeMed, who will tap his many years of experience to bring you, your faculty,and your staff this thorough introduction to technology transfer:
