A week-long boot camp training program will be offered in June for those interested in technology transfer and related fields away from the research bench and other scientific pursuits.
UNeMed, the technology transfer and commercialization office for UNMC, will host the program as a way to help more UNMC researchers and students gain a wider range of skills and experience to match their scientific knowledge and training.
The course will be held June 15-19, meeting every day at 8-11 a.m.
The program is designed to provide information across a range of technology transfer relevant areas, including:
- Evaluating new inventions;
- Intellectual property law;
- Marketing and commercialization; and
- Contract negotiation.
Rather than provide a series of lectures, UNeMed’s boot camp will dive into more hands-on activities that will highlight real-word situations and help illustrate key aspects of the technology commercialization process.
Cost is free, but space is limited. Applications to participate will be accepted until May 5. More information about the program and the application process can be found here.
