Spotlight Sessions

Spotlight Sessions

To continue the great discussions started in New Orleans during the Annual Meeting, AUTM is proud to introduce a new online opportunity: AUTM Spotlight Sessions.

During a Spotlight Session, attendees will watch the recording of a presentation from the 2022 Annual Meeting. After the presentation, the panelists will join live for a dynamic question and answer session.

Spotlight Session: Entrepreneurship and Express Licenses
Date: Friday, July 22 (Friday)
Time: Noon – 2 PM (ET)
Cost: $25 Members, $75 Non-Members

Many university faculty members are interested in doing startups and often ask technology transfer offices for assistance. To maintain and encourage entrepreneurship on campus, universities offer favorable terms to the faculty startup using express licenses. Equity, royalties and patent reimbursement are typically included. In this session, panelists will discuss how universities are using these licenses, covering the difference in licensing terms between state and private universities, life sciences and physical sciences, and touching on those who do not offer such licenses.
