Silicon Flatirons Conference: The Future of Technology Transfer

Both academic institutions and governmental laboratories have worked to reinvent technology transfer over the past several years. Recent innovations include developing new models of licensing, including open innovation strategies. Such institutions are also working to invite outside mentors to work with inventors interested in building new companies around technological breakthroughs. For successful emerging growth companies, the question becomes how can an inventor find a role as part of a broader team that can successfully commercialize a new technology.

At this conference, we will bring together leaders in technology transfer, including those with expertise in intellectual property and commercialization. We will discuss the emerging trends in technology transfer, current pitfalls, and best practices. We will also evaluate what the University of Colorado needs to do to become a national leader in this area.
