2107: Industry/Research Licensing Best Practices

This session will bring together a panel of four representatives from major international intellectual property organizations such as AUTM (Association of University Technology Managers), LES (Licensing Executives Society), and ASEE corporate and university experts for a dialogue on licensing best practices and related issues such as export controls, IRS rulings, compliance, and legislative and policy issues facing the technology-transfer community. This discussion will contribute to the development of model sponsored research and license agreements as well as increased awareness of compliance rights and primary legal issues. The overarching goal is to set a foundation for legislation and/or public endorsement of regulations for the mutual benefit of both university and industry partners and the larger tech-transfer community.

8:30-10:15 a.m.
2207: Desired Attributes for WIE and MEP Programs

Desired Attributes for Campus-Based WIE and MEP Programs and Initiatives Many engineering schools across the country rely on campus-based women in engineering and multicultural engineering programs and initiatives for outreach. What are the best practices for these programs that yield results for engineering schools? What objectives and outcomes should universities and corporate partners expect from these programs? What assessments of effectiveness must be in place to track value for both? How can universities and corporations most effectively position and support these programs?

12:30-2:00 p.m.
2407: Global Engineers - Required Skills and Experiences

International corporations have a pressing need for working with engineering education to ensure that engineers have the skills to be highly effective in industry's global business environment characterized by rapidly evolving technology and various other attributes. This session will build on a very successful 2008 conference session that explored the varied skills needed by engineering faculty, students, and practitioners to work successfully in a range of cultural settings. This discussion of scenarios will engage the audience in recommending ways these attributes may be better developed through partnerships among education, industry, government, and not-for-profit groups.

2:15-4:00 p.m.
