Dear IETTN newsletter subscriber,
Fall is almost over and we are pleased to release the second edition of the IETTN newsletter. For us, it has been a 'hot' fall by hosting a booth at IECON2016 in Italy, getting new TTOs as partners and also growing the team with two new Associate Editors: Nihal Kularatna (New Zealand) and Hipolito Guzman-Miranda (Spain).
FYI, Nihal Kularatna is organizing a first session on technology commercialization - sponsored by IETTN - at the next ICIT2017 in March 2017 in Toronto (Canada).
As a reminder, the goal of IETTN is to promote collaboration between research and industry through educating on the process of technology transfer which includes activities related to intellectual property, licensing, product development, commercialization, financing and many others. We believe the key link to success is the work done by the technology transfer offices (TTOs) and this is why the key message behind IETTN is: talk to your TTO.
Again, we would appreciate if you could share this newsletter with all your friends. Feel free to contact us on any opportunity that you think might be a fit for IETTN (new financing, new patent, new product, new startup, etc.). Also, we would be happy to receive your application for becoming an Associate Editor or contributing in some other way to IETTN. Spread the word!
We would like to specially thank the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society (IES) for sponsoring, supporting and taking leadership in this project.
Marc Perron and Dietmar Bruckner, IETTN EiC & co-EiC.
