Technology Transfer Tactics

Below is an excerpt:

Female participation in innovation and technology transfer activities is becoming a spotlight issue at many universities, thanks in part to the forward-thinking women leaders participating in the Association of University Technology Managers’ Women Inventors Committee (AUTM WIC). “Female faculty members are one resource that every TTO has,” says Jean Baker, JD, PhD, a partner and patent attorney in the Milwaukee office of Quarles & Brady LLP. “Getting those faculty to participate in innovation allows TTOs to make the most of their resources. A lack of female inventors and entrepreneurs means that a university is leaving exciting technologies and great opportunities for revenue sitting in a drawer.”
