The National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine is hosting a webinar on universities’ technology transfer operations January 17 at 1pm EST. The webinar will examine how universities are moving beyond a revenue-driven, transactional technology transfer approach and integrating the efforts of technology management offices into the broader engagement activities of institutions.
Universities are becoming active in regional and national innovation ecosystems, preparing students for today’s disruption economy, and driving economic and social prosperity. In response, technology transfer must connect with institutions’ work to be engaged in economic, community, and talent development.
Jim Woodell, APLU’s Vice President for Economic Development and Community Engagement, will participate in the webinar. Julie Nagel, President of KU Innovation and Associate Vice Chancellor for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the University of Kansas and Paul Roben, Associate Vice Chancellor for Innovation and Commercialization at the University of California San Diego, will also serve as panelists in the webinar.
