Alliance of Technology Transfer Professionals (ATTP)

Promoting Global Standards

It is the goal of ATTP to unify, educate and strengthen the worldwide body of early, mid and senior career technology transfer practitioners and support them in moving academic research from the lab to the marketplace. ATTP is comprised of nine technology transfer associations: the founding associations — ASTP, AUTM, KCA and PraxisAuril — and the associations that have since joined: Redtransfer, SNITTS, SARIMA, Society for Technology Management (STEM), TechnologieAllianz, UNITT and ÜSİMP. Together these organizations support the Registered Technology Transfer Professional Certification (RTTP). For more information visit ATTP

Registered Technology Transfer Professional (RTTP)
The RTTP designation tells employers, colleagues and others in our industry that you have demonstrated core competencies and are responsible for significant achievements and contributions in the field of technology transfer.

RTTP affirms that you’re a mentor and deal maker with a rich network of well-placed colleagues across multiple disciplines. RTTP means demonstrated competence, integrity, vision, versatility and negotiation skills. An RTTP certification invites career advancement, a higher income and coveted roles in shepherding key university-bred technologies into the marketplace, to the benefit of society and all parties involved in the process.

Another strong reason the RTTP designation is so valuable is the quality, diversity, consistency and relevance of the technology transfer training events offered by Alliance partner associations such as AUTM. ATTP thoroughly reviews all training events before they are awarded Continuing Education points. The process entails a site visit for all new service providers, including member associations, as well as reviewing the training event program, presenters and material against a range of criteria.
