OMAHA, Neb. (May 9, 2018)—The 2018 Technology Transfer Boot Camp is scheduled for Aug. 6-10, UNeMed announced today.

Entering its fourth year, the Tech Transfer Boot Camp is aimed at scientists and students that are interested in what it takes to commercialize a new invention or discovery.

  • Invention evaluation
  • Intellectual property law
  • Marketing and commercialization
  • Contract negotiation

UNeMed’s Tech Transfer Boot Camp will dive deeper than simple lectures. Topics wills be explored with hands-on activities meant to teach, correct and reinforce new skills and abilities.
