The Directors' Forum is a Special Interest Group organised by and for KT/TTO directors. The forum has been created to allow directors to work collaboratively together.
If you are a Director of a KTO/TTO, you are warmly welcome to the first ASTP in-person Directors’ Forum meeting to discuss Data Management of a KTO: what’s the solution?
Join us for one evening and one day in Antwerp, in the company of international colleagues to share, network and learn from each other on how to work in the best interest of our institutions, teams and investors. As Knowledge Transfer Offices face ever-increasing expectations in terms of technology and commercial readiness; as directors we face an enormous Data Management challenge.
These longer-term processes require us to securely manage:
- increased funding form different channels and the subsequent commitment to ensure the rights and obligations of many more interested parties
- the expectations and management required by multidisciplinary teams
- the increasingly complex regulation for the export of knowledge: state aid, ethical research and dual use
This meeting intends to be the first step in the development of a position paper to be delivered by the end of 2023.
