UC System-Wide Technology Transfer Forums

The system-wide technology transfer forums are designed to foster a better understanding of how to work with UC and to showcase emerging areas of research that might present collaboration or investment opportunities to angel investors, venture capitalists, and company representatives. These events provide an excellent opportunity for potential investors and company representatives to stay abreast of what is going on at UC within specific areas of research, and to network with researchers, sponsored research/industry alliances officers, and technology transfer professionals from across the UC System.
