The main focus of ASTP activities is to provide hands-on meetings for beginning, as well as experienced TTOs and organise a social opportunity for networking and informational exchanges. ASTP organises several conferences, training courses, masterclasses and on-site training for our members and other interested participants.
During presentations and discussions, led by experts in technology transfer and knowledge transfer from different parts of the world, participants are given the opportunity to learn, exchange experiences and take part in interactive discussions, role-plays etc. Social events such as trips to science parks and other innovative centres with relevance to the technology transfer sector will be scheduled as well.
Below is the schedule for the year beginning 1 January 2019.
