Holistic Technology Transfer™
As technology licensing offices become less transactional and assume more business development responsibilities to create higher value-add, it is necessary to understand the entire set of activities linked to effective technology transfer. HOLISTIC TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER™ considers the technology management timeline as a whole and connected process. Click through to learn more about this process.

Marketing is absolutely critical to technology transfer success. Without it, you are guaranteed to have technology assets sit in your portfolio without ever realizing their public and economic benefit. Marketing takes many forms, so a robust marketing plan should account for all the different ways that new technologies can be promoted. Pull marketing can be established through good relationships with industry, entrepreneurs, and investors. Push marketing ensures that you are putting the right information in front of the right people at the right time.

After execution of the agreement, most technology transfer staff are ready to forget about the document and just wait for the checks to start rolling in…but as we all know, that is not typically how the process works. If you aren’t following up with your licensee on a regular basis, communication and sometimes payments, can fall behind. With a regular strategic communication plan, you can be sure that your licensees remain compliant and diligence and reporting occur on time.
