Biography of Dr Ashley J. Stevens



One of the most critical issues in technology transfer is to how to decide what your technology is worth before you start negotiations with potential licensees.

The AUTM Valuation Course has been developed to meet this need and to provide a solid grounding in both the underlying principles and some of the specific tools practitioners will need.

In the afternoon, the class will be divided up into teams that will work on two specific cases based on real world examples. The teams will prepare answers to specific questions raised in the cases and then will share their answers with the rest of the class.

*This course will offer 8 hours of continuing education (CE) towards the RTTP for those who attend the entire day.
