Webinar Series: President's Initiative on University Research Commercialization

The National Council of Entrepreneurial Tech Transfer (NCET2) presents “President Obama’s Initiative on University Research Commercialization: How Universities Plan To Respond” webinar series.

The National Council of Entrepreneurial Tech Transfer (NCET2) presents “President Obama’s Initiative on University Research Commercialization: How Universities Plan To Respond” webinar series. On September 16, 2011, President Obama announced new steps that will help America’s universities and research labs convert ideas into new products, create startups, expand the economy and create high-value 21st century jobs. In coordination with the Administration, 135 university presidents committed to working more closely with industry, investors, and agencies to bolster entrepreneurship, encourage university-industry collaboration, and advance the nation’s social and economic interests.

The commitments are aimed at helping achieve the President’s goal of strengthening commercialization of the nearly $148 billion in annual federally-funded research and development. The “President Obama’s Initiative on University Research Commercialization: How Universities Plan To Respond” webinar series will have university leaders highlight specific plans for following through on this commitment and bolstering their commercialization efforts, in direct response to the President’s call to action.
