Site Visit K.U. Leuven Research & Development 11 April 2008 In September 2007 ASTP started the first series of fly-in, fly-out site visits that ASTP is organising to leading Technology Transfer Offices around Europe. We learned from the first one that these visits give valuable insights into the way that such offices operate, and of their organisation, genesis and underlying principles – vastly more than listening to any presentation or visiting any website. The take-home messages are likely to be very personal – it’ll be down to individual members to decide what they can apply back in their own environment. This one day event is structured to a series of talks – but with plenty of time for facilitated discussion. Numbers are limited to 40 participants in order to preserve an informal atmosphere. We are doing everything we can to keep the administration and participant costs right down – including on-line credit-card-only registration and a timetable that allows you to fly in and fly out on the same day.
Program The program for the day has ample time for questions and discussion in between the following sessions: 10.20 Arrive and Coffee 10.30 Technology Transfer at Leuven - Overview 11.30 Legal Support and Agreements 12.30 Lunch 13.15 Patenting & Licensing 14.00 Spin-outs and Portfolio Management 14.45 Tea/coffee 15.00 Case study & testimony 16.00 Wrap up and Close
