AUTM Foundation, in partnership with the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Department of State, is hosting the second U.S.-Egypt Technology Transfer Workshop on June 24-27 in Cairo, Egypt.

Through the Foundation’s global professional development efforts, it strives to support international partners in developing an innovation lifecycle unique to their country’s ecosystem and to empower the individual professionals moving discoveries through the process.

Through educational sessions, panels and discussions, this workshop aims to provide participants with a thorough overview of the intellectual property and technology transfer framework in the United States and Egypt and the various considerations that go into creating an innovation ecosystem. Topics will include technology transfer needs and priorities, evaluating and triaging invention disclosures; writing for technology marketing, and technology valuation- among others.

The event will feature 10 U.S. public and 4 U.S. private sector experts from various technology transfer offices providing in-country instruction for up to 50 Egyptian participants. Simultaneous interpretation services will be provided during this event.

AUTM Foundation collaborated with their Egyptian colleagues at the Academy of Scientific Research & Technology (ASRT), the USDA’s Office of Science & Technology Cooperation, and ASRT’s Office of International Research Programs (OIRP) and Office of Technology Transfer (OTT).

We look forward to a productive week of collaboration and learning.

AUTM Foundation previously partnered with ASRT and USDA last September. Through that partnership, we brought over a group of delegates from Cairo to take part in a technology transfer workshop followed by the AUTM Eastern Regional Meeting. You can learn more about that here.
