Introducing the U.Va. Innovation Learning Center!


Want to know what it takes to start your own company, or get SBIR/STTR funding? Could you use a refresher on intellectual property? We’re here to help!

Our new Learning Center is home to informational primers designed to assist non-experts in learning the basics of technology transfer, intellectual property and entrepreneurship. Our first five presentations include:

  • Introduction to Technology Transfer
  • Introduction to Intellectual Property
  • Determining Inventorship in an Academic Setting
  • Launching a Company
  • Introduction to SBIT/STTR Awards

Big thanks go out to all of our partners who contributed to this new addition, including the Batten Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the Darden School of Business. We’ll continue to add to the Learning Center as time goes on, so let us know what topics you’d like to see — and if you’d like us to present any of these topics or others to your department, lab or other group.
