  1. 1.     Background

In February 2019, the Ministry of Education of Peoples Republic of China identified the first batch of 47 Technology Transfer Bases (hereinafter referred to as “ the Bases”), many of which are ISTA members, as forerunners of the Chinese TTOs. In April 2020, some initial success were published in an official report released by the Ministry, highlighting best practices experimented by the Bases and creating a zeal of peer-to-peer learning among the Chinese KE/KT/TT community.

In this context, ISTA launchs a series of webinars to address the rising interest of the community in these latest TTO best practices experimented by the Bases.

Bringing together practitioners and experts from both China and abroad, these webinars will provide the audiences  with insights and tips from hands-on executives on the chosen topics.

 

  1. 2.     Features

2.1   Benchmarking: Chinese & Foreign Countries

Each webinar will focus on one specific aspect to draw references from the forerunners’ practice from both China and abroad with an aim to provide a collective learning experience for all participants.

2.2  Hands-on Experience Sharing in Depth

Each webinar will last for 2 to 2.5 hours, including presentations by 3~4 practitioners from the Bases sharing their hands-on experience and 1~2 overseas speakers providing benchmarking insights. An 40 mintues interactive discussion will entail the sharings to provide more insights by comparing and contrasting the practices by different insititutions.
