During 2021 a group of professionals new to knowledge transfer joined their resources to form this new ASTP Special Interests Group (SIG).

This New Professionals SIG will be a landing point for individuals that are new to the field of Knowledge Transfer (KT) and Technology Transfer (TT) or that are already in technology transfer but transitioning into a new position or looking for ways to further their professional development. It would be a place to network, expand one’s understanding about the different areas within KT and learn new or develop on existing skills relevant to this profession. We want to provide a supportive, interactive, and educational environment for this group.
