Research Commercialization Introductory Course
Online September 20, 2011- October 18
The Research Commercialization Introductory Course is free online course that includes seven 90-minute lectures with Q&A. With lectures twice weekly over one month, the course is designed to help busy science and engineering researchers better understand how research commercialization works. More than 4,000 researchers from across the US and Canada register to take the course each time it is offered.
Research commercialization involves taking articles, documentation, know-how, patents, and copyrights, which are created during research activities and getting them to users and patients for real societal impacts.
The Research Commercialization Course is recommended for all science, engineering and medical researchers in public or private research institutions (e.g., grad students, post-docs, and faculty). This is an indispensable course for S&E grad students looking for jobs in the next 6-18 months in this competitive employment environment.
