Speaker:Phyllis Speser, Foresight Science & Technology
Topic:Foresight – How to Succeed in the US in the Era of Trump
Excerpt:The US is one of the world’s largest markets for technology. It is also a major source of gap and venture funding for immature technologies. With President Trump now in office, doing R&D collaborations, licensing deals, and obtaining capital in the US may be more challenging. Dr. Speser brings unique insights due to her work as a registered lobbyist in Washington DC for science societies for 10 years, a VP of AUTM, a director of a university technology transfer office, founder of one of the oldest firms in commercialization, and author of the best-selling textbook “The Art & Science of Technology Transfer”. Dr. Speser will discuss what is changing under the new presidency; the challenges these changes create for non-US academic, medical, and research institutions; and how to surmount them and succeed with the aid of Foresight.
