Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) April 17, 2012

The Johns Hopkins Carey Business School will team up with the Johns Hopkins Office of Technology Transfer and the University at Albany Business School on April 19 to present “Making a Quantum Leap in Technology Transfer.” The day-long event will explore opportunities for accelerating technology transfer at universities that have not traditionally focused on such activity.

A key function of the event will be to demonstrate how tech transfer has been successfully achieved at institutions such as Johns Hopkins, whose tech transfer office has risen from 98th place to 26th in the rankings of the Association of University Technology Managers over the past four years. Newly emerging academic centers in technology transfer, such as Johns Hopkins and Ohio State University, are showing how even late-comers can make the quantum leap in technology transfer.

“The top research universities have come to understand the immense potential of technology transfer,” says Phillip Phan, interim dean of the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School. “From the discoveries and inventions of the best researchers come the products that benefit both society at large and the institutions creating them. That´s why the Carey curriculum, particularly our Discovery to Market course, places such a premium on teaching our students about the tech transfer process. They learn all its ins and outs, from first finding to commercialization, and we believe this gives them a terrific head start toward becoming the kinds of entrepreneurs and managers that the current business climate requires.”

The event will comprise academic presentations in the morning and practitioner presentations in the afternoon. The academic research papers will be considered for publication in a special issue of the Journal of Technology Transfer. After editorial review, the practitioner presentations will be considered for the commentary section of the Journal.

“Making a Quantum Leap in Technology Transfer” will take place at the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School, 100 International Drive, in the Harbor East area of Baltimore. The planned agenda is as follows:
