AUTM’s mission to advance discoveries for a better world is an ambitious endeavor requiring a multifaceted approach to develop programs and encourage innovation, engagement and collaboration.

The Global Technology Portal (GTP) is one example of such an innovation. The GTP digital catalogue showcases more than 22,000 technology descriptions so that companies and investors can locate the newest technologies available for licensing worldwide, as well as identify research institutions for potential collaboration or partnerships. As one of the largest searchable databases of university technologies available for licensing, the GTP has become a valuable tool to accelerate the commercialization process by connecting buyers and sellers of innovative, emerging technologies.

The most successful innovations of our time have been achieved because of early funding and collaborative engagement that brought research findings from a lab into everyday practice. Supporting innovation is an investment that comes with a personal reward in joining others who are making meaningful, real-life changes.

FUNDING NEEDS

Over the next few years, AUTM will expand and enhance its services and programs to reach more members and provide easier access to information and training. The following are current programs included in the Innovation Fund needs:

Data & Metrics: AUTM has been the leader in collecting, synthesizing and disseminating academic technology transfer data as a valued resource for its members and colleagues around the world. By providing this service, AUTM can assess needs of the profession, identify future trends and provide a framework for strategic growth.

Pilot Programs: Having the flexibility and resources to seed pilot programs (such as the Early Career Fellows Program) is important for AUTM to continue being the leading technology transfer profession.

Outreach & Engagement: Meeting with sector and profession leaders in various communities and countries is vital to ensure visibility, promote the Association’s mission and encourage partnerships that ultimately build a stronger and more diverse Association.
