Tech Transfer Basics for Faculty and Students
Wednesday, Dec. 5, 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., Memorial Union Rose room
Tech Transfer is the process by which university research can be transferred into the public sector through commercial development. As patents or other intellectual property protection and business agreements are critical to commercial product development, the NDSU Tech Transfer Office works to ensure these aspects of the universitys intellectual assets are managed appropriately. Faculty, in particular, should plan to attend to learn more about the process. Presented by the Technology Transfer Office.
