The next Technology Transfer Boot Camp is scheduled for Aug. 12 - 16, 2019.
Entering its fifth year, the 2019 Tech Transfer Boot Camp is aimed at scientists and students who are interested in learning about the process of commercializing a new invention or discovery. The week-long workshop can also serve as fast-track toward an alternate career in science as a technology transfer professional.
The training program helps participants 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 will be explored with hands-on activities meant to teach, correct and reinforce new skills and abilities.
Students, faculty and staff within the University of Nebraska system are 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 29, 2019 and will be reviewed in the order they are received until all spaces are filled.
