Technology Transfer Tactics Releases June Issue with a Special Focus on Women in Research Commercialization

ATLANTA, GE - 06/26/2018 — The June issue of Technology Transfer Tactics newsletter, published by 2Market Information Inc., features in-depth coverage on the biases and barriers women face in research commercialization. While gender equality has come a long way, in the work of research commercialization women are far less likely than men to have their inventions patented and licensed, to obtain transitional funding, or have a start-up company created around their IP. 

Studies confirm women disclose fewer inventions, receive less funding for start-ups, and are not equally represented in business leadership roles. For TTOs, the issue is not just about bias, it’s also a significant economic challenge. Barriers that are keeping women from disclosing and commercializing their innovations are also costing the TTO valuable IP and patents, potential licensing revenues, and start-up opportunities that may never get past the idea stage. 

Technology Transfer Tactics has teamed up with many of the leading voices tackling gender equity in tech transfer. We’ve devoted the entire June issue to exploring this problem, offering guidance from visionaries confronting gender inequity in tech transfer. You’ll find data, resources, examples of approaches and programs, and plenty of advice. Here’s what’s inside this month’s issue: 

  • TTOs can take steps to move toward gender parity in commercialization.
  • Is an SBIR/STTR focus right for your women faculty?
  • Outreach and messaging tweaks bring in more women.
