The TTP Manual is meant to be, at its core, a compendium of the collective knowledge of the best and brightest practitioners in the field of academic technology transfer, as well as to provide a forum to publish information that addresses a broad spectrum of issues relevant to the profession… the TTP Manual Editorial Committee is deeply committed to these purposes.
