Town Hall Announcement from TVC

Dear Colleagues 

The Office of the Vice President for Research (VPR) and the Center for Technology & Venture Commercialization (TVC) are hosting a series of town hall presentations to discuss exciting new updates and services at TVC. In addition, we will discuss proposed adjustments to existing policies in order to address historical barriers to commercialization, align the University with best practices at other top-tier research institutions, support a thriving culture of innovation, and establish more tools and resources for future generations of researchers and entrepreneurs at the University of Utah. 

Each town hall presentation will cover:  

  • Organizational changes and new TVC programs to support innovators 
  • Upcoming initiatives that will create additional resources for commercialization activity 
  • Proposed changes to policies that regulate and strengthen commercialization activities at the University 

The town halls are open to all faculty, staff, post-docs, & students, and will consist of introductory remarks by Vice President for Research, Andrew Weyrich, a presentation by TVC’s Executive Director, Keith Marmer, and an open forum Q&A and UofU community feedback session. Refreshments will be served at each event, (with lunch included at the October 14th event.)
