Start by attending the 2022 Annual Meeting this February in New Orleans, where parades will be plentiful and technology transfer deal makers will gather to learn, inspire and partner. Whether you’re from academia or industry, a seasoned pro or new to tech transfer, AUTM has the programming you need to succeed in 2022 and beyond. Here are the highlights: 
 
Educational Sessions: The Annual Meeting is the place for tech transfer education, with 90 educational sessions. This year’s schedule is stellar. Our educational lineup will help in your current role and prepare you for the future. We’ve got something for everyone: first-timers, admin, and more. And watch out, you may even experience a professional “aha” moment - or 10. View the Schedule  
 
Keynote Featuring Lt. General Russel L. Honoré (Ret.): Thought-provoking speakers include problem-solver Lt. General Russel L. Honoré, who helps organizations develop a culture of preparedness for take-charge leaders. With an uplifting dose of candor and real-world leadership lessons, he shares his no-nonsense approach to getting the job done and instills confidence in tomorrow’s leaders. Meet Lt. General Honoré 
 
Keynote Featuring Anna Young, CEO of MakerHealth: Anna Young works from a fundamental belief that, with the right tools, everyday people can use their ingenuity to create devices that heal. Applying years of global experience with the Maker Movement, she brings prototyping tools and makerspaces into hospitals to enhance the natural problem solving abilities of clinicians and patients. She is the Co-Founder of MakerNurse, a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation sponsored program to support inventive, frontline nurses. Her roots come from MIT as a researcher in the Little Devices Lab and lecturer in the Institute for Medical Engineering and Science. Meet Anna Young  
 
Training on the Hottest Topics: The AUTM Annual Meeting features add-on sessions to augment your educational experience. These timely, relevant sessions will help you succeed in technology transfer. On Sunday, Feb. 20, you can choose from the Marketing, Startup, or Technology Valuation Courses. On Tuesday, Feb. 22, you can attend the Negotiation Course. View the Details  
 
Networking Galore: AUTM Connect is a powerful networking platform that will allow you to connect with fellow attendees, search for technologies, schedule meetings and more! More than 9,000 face-to-face meetings are held during AUTM’s Annual Meetings to cement connections and get deals done. 
 
The Big Easy Guide to New Orleans: New Orleans was named one of the World's Greatest Places 2021. We’re more than excited to see you there. Get jazzed with our guide to all you’ll experience in the city: music, food, Mardi Gras krewes. It has something for everyone! We've also sourced recommendations from local AUTM Members in-the-know. View the Guide  
 
At-Home: Your in-person registration includes at-home access to audio recordings from the sessions that you couldn’t squeeze in on site in New Orleans, so you can continue the learning throughout the year. That’s real value. If you can’t travel to this year’s Meeting, don’t worry! Order a Virtual registration and you can still participate in partnering with everyone registered, as you’ll have access to AUTM Connect to set up one-on-one meetings with potential partners starting Jan. 3. You’ll also be able to visit the virtual exhibit hall to find the solutions you’ve been looking for. And two weeks after the Meeting, you will receive the digital audio recordings of all the educational sessions to listen to at your leisure. 
 
Convince Your Boss: Think you'll need some help making the case that you should be at the Meeting and not behind your home office desk? We’ve put together a pitch to share with your boss. The question is not whether you and your colleagues should go. The question is whether you can afford to miss out on the insights and networking that will make you immediately more successful at work. Convince Your Boss 
 
Resolve to Save: If you register today, you’ll save $100 off the cost of onsite registration. That’s worth a yoga class or two! Bonus: renew or establish your AUTM Membership BEFORE registering for the Annual Meeting in order to get the Member rate.
