Celebrate Technology Transfer Professionals Day

By Chadwick Riggs posted 12-12-2016 10:58


You are encouraged to celebrate the Association of University Technology Managers (AUTM) Technology Transfer Professionals Day on Monday, December 12. This date is the 36th anniversary of the Bayh-Dole Act which dramatically expanded the profession and promoted the process by which basic research is transferred to companies for development and commercialization into products that benefit society. Reach out to your technology transfer office and get to know your technology transfer professionals while learning more about disclosing inventions, the licensing process, ways to partner and how you can participate and earn money. The day began last year at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to celebrate their office existing 20 years, and was formally adopted by AUTM this year.
