Proven Strategies for Rebranding and Revitalizing your TTO

A Two-Session Distance Learning Collection
Format: On-Demand Video/Transcript, or DVD
Price: $279 (regularly $394)

The role of technology transfer is evolving.


And for some TTOs, the structure, branding, marketing, and modes of operation have simply not kept pace with those changes – nor with changes in expectations from administrators, legislators, faculty, and other key stakeholders.

The days of being strictly faculty-service oriented are gone, as are the days of vanity start-ups and patenting every disclosure. The focus has shifted to one that translates research into tangible economic development — jobs, tax revenues, start-ups, and return on research investments. While some forward-thinking offices have stayed ahead of the curve, others are lagging behind — and need a radical makeover.

Can such a mammoth shift – a successful re-branding and reorganization of a TTO’s operations and focus – truly be accomplished?

YES! And that’s why we’ve compiled this distance learning case study combo pack that focuses on two standout rebranding projects from the University of New Hampshire and the University of Virginia. Each university embarked on a major renovation that involved upper administration as well as the entire researcher community, and required significant changes to the organizational structure and culture alike. And both restructuring efforts also brought huge rewards!

Individually these programs sell for $197 each -– you get BOTH for just $279. 

You get the on-demand video, transcript, and original program materials – and receive unlimited access for you, your staff and faculty. You can use this valuable collection over and over whenever the need arises, and share it freely throughout your organization!
