Commercialization workshops continue

May 26, 2009

KALAMAZOO--Two programs remain in a three-part series of training workshops at Western Michigan University for faculty and staff members wanting to learn about commercializing their research.

The series began May 19 and is being sponsored by Biotechnology Business Consultants in Ann Arbor, Mich., and WMU's Office of the Vice President for Research and Office of Intellectual Property Management and Commercialization.

Attendees should come with their questions and will have the opportunity to schedule one-on-one appointments with each of the presenters in the afternoon following the training.

Registration is required for the final two programs, which will take place from 9 a.m. to noon on back-to-back Tuesdays in the Fetzer Center.

  • "Intro to Commercialization: Michigan-based Life Sciences" on Tuesday, May 26, is free and will explore commercialization options for early-stage life science companies.
  • "Government Accounting and Grants Management" on Tuesday, June 2, costs $50 and is designed for those unfamiliar with the accounting and management requirements associated with receiving federal dollars.

Register online or call Kris Bergman at (734) 930-9741.
