The Conversation is a leadership forum of senior-level academic technology transfer, corporate relations, new ventures and industry collaborations professionals meeting together in 2024 in Nashville, Tennessee to connect and discuss the ways in which we can leverage our leadership roles to stimulate interactions that drive broad collaborative initiatives, including accelerating commercialization and improving innovation.

The Conversation, designed for senior level academic professionals, will be strategic and forward looking.
