Leadership Forum

The Conversation: An AUTM Leadership Forum

August 27 - 28, 2024
Sheraton Grand Nashville
Nashville, TN

The Conversation is a leadership forum of senior-level technology transfer, corporate relations, investor/VC and industry 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 and industry leadership, will be strategic and forward looking. The agenda will include timely discussions about holistic academia-industry engagements and current innovation initiatives, with a strict no-PowerPoints-allowed structure that engages attendees in meaningful discussion – and potentially debate - with each panel of experts as well as the audience. You will have an opportunity to explore current topics, which may include the expanded roles of tech transfer, IP and national security concerns, the changing face of metrics, data licensing, hiring, and the hybrid work environment.
