World Affairs Council of New Hampshire – Academic Technology Transfer: Its Origins and Global Impact
December 1 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm
“Technology transfer supports all the pillars of the new global economy: innovation, technology, entrepreneurship and knowledge.” This quote comes from the Association of University Technology Managers Foundation website, which is dedicated to supporting the critical work of creating university and industry partnerships to advance economic development and foster the technology transfer sector for the benefit of the global marketplace. In a world where technology drives all sectors, creating sustainable partnerships between researchers and innovators is critical.
While you may not have heard of the term technology transfer in the past, you have seen the end results impacting the everyday world we live in. Over 200 vaccines and drugs are the result of universities sharing critical research with business partners to further develop and commercialize research. From firefighting drones to artificial lungs, there are a wide range of amazing products and discoveries we have to thank technology transfer for.
Attendees of the Global Business Summit will come away with a better understanding of what technology transfer is, how it is driving global innovation, and the power it has to transform the world as we know it. In addition, you will have the opportunity to network with practitioners in the field to build connections and deepen understanding. Dr. Ashley Stevens, a leading voice in the field of Technology Transfer will provide critical insights into this important field, followed by an engaging discussion with local experts to further expand on the conversation.
