The Road to RTTP
Do you want to be recognised as a professional, part of a globally recognised community of proficient colleagues across various disciplines? As someone who efficiently facilitates knowledge and technology transfers and enables industry and our broader society to benefit from the endeavours of our researchers? If your answer is “Yes” you should apply for Registered Technology Transfer Professional status and open up possibilities to advance your tech transfer career.
Registered Technology Transfer Professional status recognises the accomplishments, roles, skills, knowledge, and deal-making expertise of technology transfer professionals on a world-wide basis. It tells employers, colleagues and others in our industry that you have demonstrated core competencies and are responsible for significant achievements and contributions in the field of knowledge and technology transfer. And this is exactly what you deserve.
How to gain Registered Technology Transfer Professional status?
In order to help you start the journey towards this accreditation we created a range of “Professional development packages” based on our experience of the variety of training courses, master classes and previous experiences of other practitioners, many of whom are progressing towards or have gained Registered Technology Transfer Professional accreditation.
The Road to Registered Technology Transfer Professional program is based on the principles of on-the-job training, and it includes a combination of self-studying, workshops, training classes, and networking events – summarized in a thesis based on one of your own projects in your own KTO.
All training and coaching under the program will be provided by senior experts in our profession, all certified RTTPs themselves, and individually approved by the Board of Directors of ASTP to provide these services.
The idea is that our value proposition must be attractive to the individual member. It must also demonstrate a very clear cost-benefit to the KTO-director, who will approve the cost.
