CONTEXT

In today’s knowledge-based economy, IP assets are playing an increasingly key role. The development of Open Innovation, the exponential increase in the number of patents and patent litigations and the development of IP intermediation tools lead to the emergence of new professions. In particular, Technology Transfer (TT) and licensing activities become crucial issues and require highly qualified people: TT managers need to possess skills in a very large scope of domains (scientific, legal, intellectual property, financial, negotiation and project management).

One of the ways to enhance the quality of TT and innovation in Europe is to promote professional competences and support career development of TT managers.

OBJECTIVES

Delivering a high quality training covering the whole scope of technology transfer activities for professionals with significant experience as well as newcomers.

The curriculum covers all skills required for activities related to knowledge and technology management, licensing in and licensing out.

The collaboration between IEEPI, the University of Strasbourg and Solvay Brussels School Lifelong Learning allows participants to engage with renowned experts with a valuable teaching experience.
