UNeMed's Technology Transfer Boot Camp is scheduled to return as an in-person event on Aug. 16-20.

Tech Transfer Boot Camp is for scientists and students who are interested in learning what it takes to commercialize a new invention or discovery. The week-long event also can jump-start an alternate career in science as a technology transfer professional.

The program helps scientists gain a wide range of skills and experience that match their scientific knowledge and training.

Boot camp focuses on several key areas relevant to a successful career in technology transfer, including:

  • Invention evaluation;
  • Intellectual property law;
  • Marketing and commercialization; and
  • Contract negotiation

UNeMed's Tech Transfer Boot Camp dives deeper than simple lectures. Topics wills be explored with hands-on activities meant to teach, correct and reinforce new skills and abilities.

Anyone within the University of Nebraska system is encouraged to apply and participate free of charge, but space is limited. People who aren't affiliated with the University of Nebraska also are welcome but will be charged $200 upon acceptance.

Applications are open through Friday, July 30, and will be reviewed in the order they are received until all spaces are filled. Apply here. More information about the application process and requirements can be found here.
