FLC National Meeting Offers Abundance of Training Opportunities

The FLC national meeting provides a multitude of opportunities each year for the nation’s top technology transfer (T2) professionals to learn, strategize, and make business connections.

This year, the FLC will meet in Orlando—a city known as a hotbed for high-tech innovative thinkers and doers. The meeting will kick off with a full day of onsite training designed to meet the professional development requirements of all T2 professionals.

The training day features a selection of seven courses for attendees ranging from T2 beginners to experienced practitioners to choose from. New T2 professionals can take advantage of the T2 overview for beginners, which is designed to teach basic T2 concepts using case studies, exercises, and discussion with expert trainers from the National Cancer Institute, Griffiss Institute, NASA Armstrong, and USDA-ARS.

Intermediate T2 professionals can select from in-depth, valuable workshops that explore licensing and negotiation and how to craft and negotiate Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRADAs). The curriculum also offers an intermediate course geared toward intellectual property, which includes an examination of the patent process.

Advanced T2 professionals can learn to identify and understand the external innovation ecosystem in a course led by subject-matter experts from Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division. Another advanced option is American Management Association (AMA) training, a course focused on developing your staff through teaching.

The FLC national meeting offers a wide array of possibilities for T2 professionals to expand their knowledge. While the Technology Valuation & IP Portfolio Management course is full, a variety of options are available for attendees to choose from.
