Entering its fourth year, the Tech Transfer Boot Camp is aimed at scientists and students that are interested in what it takes to commercialize a new invention or discovery. The week-long event can also serve as fast-track toward an alternate career in science as a technology transfer professional.
The training program helps scientist gain a wide range of skills and experience that match their scientific knowledge and training.
The program will focus on several key areas relevant to a successful career in technology transfer, including:
- Invention evaluation
- Intellectual property law
- Marketing and commercialization
- Contract negotiation
UNeMed's Tech Transfer Boot Camp will dive deeper than simple lectures. Topics wills be explored with hands-on activities meant to teach, correct and reinforce new skills and abilities.
Anyone within the University of Nebraska system is encouraged to apply and participate free of charge, but space is limited. People who aren't affiliated with the University of Nebraska are also welcome, but will be charged $200 upon acceptance.
Applications will be accepted through Monday, July 30, and will be reviewed in the order they are received until all spaces are filled.
More information about the application process and requirements can be found at the UNeMed Programs page.
