2018 National Meeting

The 2018 national meeting in Philadelphia was a huge success with an attendance of over 400 technology transfer and industry professionals from across the country. This year’s meeting trainers, session speakers, and panelists provided valuable technology transfer skill-building exercises and shared their innovative expertise to an engaged audience. The FLC would like to thank all meeting presenters and attendees for joining us this year as we celebrated American innovation – it would not have been possible without you.
