The annual western regional meeting of the Association of University Technology Managers (AUTM)) is coming to Alberta for the first time this fall.
The meeting takes place Sept. 10 and 11 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Calgary, Alberta, just down the road (actually a three hour drive) from TEC Edmonton’s base in Alberta’s other big city, Edmonton.
TEC Edmonton is happy to be assisting its Calgary counterpart Innovate Calgary in making this event a grand success. As the AUTM is North America’s leading association of those responsible for commercializing university research, the desire is to showcase the remarkable transfer of technology, from the university laboratories to commercial products and services happening in Alberta.
The AUTM is a major force in the university technology transfer business. Over 1,900 delegates from universities, industries and government attended its last annual conference in New Orleans.
TEC Edmonton is a gold sponsor of the upcoming AUTM western regional meeting in Calgary.
