Dates set for 2017 Boot Camp, accepting applications


OMAHA, Neb. (July 26, 2017)—UNeMed’s 2017 Technology Transfer Boot Camp program is set for August 15-18. The Boot Camp is particularly aimed toward scientists interested in getting away from the bench, but continuing their scientific pursuits in technology transfer activities.

UNeMed’s four-day training program help’s scientists gain a wider range of technology commercialization skills and experience that matches their scientific knowledge and training.

The program will be held from 8 a.m. to noon beginning Aug. 15 and concluding Aug. 18.

Grad students Richard Nelson and Simarjeet Negi look on during a session of UNeMed's first Technology Transfer Boot Camp, a week of immersive training sessions that dove into the commercialization of biomedical science.

Grad students Richard Nelson and Simarjeet Negi look on during a session at UNeMed’s first Technology Transfer Boot Camp in 2015.

The program is designed to provide information across a range of technology transfer relevant areas, including:

  • Evaluating new inventions
  • Intellectual property law
  • Marketing and commercialization
  • Contract negotiation

Rather than provide a series of lectures, UNeMed’s tech transfer boot camp will dive into more hands-on activities. Activities will highlight real-word situations, and help illustrate key aspects of the technology commercialization process.

Anyone at UNMC is encouraged to apply and participate free of charge. Non-UNMC affiliates are also welcome, but will be charged $200 upon acceptance.

Applications will be accepted until Aug. 10, and will be reviewed in the order they are received until all spaces are filled. If the embedded form does not properly display below, the application may be accessed here.
