Georgia Tech’s Office of Industry Engagement to Share Best Practices in Open Innovation

Kevin Wozniak, Executive Director of Georgia Tech’s Office of Industry Engagement, will serve as a panelist for a Technology Transfer Tactics webinar, “Open Innovation Best Practices for University Tech Transfer.” This live, interactive webinar will take place on Friday, April 19, at 1:00 pm EST.

Wozniak will be joined by two panelists, Charles Johnson-Bey, Ph.D., open innovation program manager for Lockheed Martin, and Laura Schoppe, president of Fuentek, a consulting firm that provides intellectual property and technology transfer services.

The panelists will present multiple models of open innovation and explore how universities can successfully engage in this practice. The panelists will also address the challenges that arise when industry, government, and universities pursue open innovation and offer strategies to help overcome these challenges.

“Open innovation has provided growing opportunities for universities to more fully engage with government and industry partners,” said Wozniak. “I look forward to discussing best practices that will help universities establish successful collaborations.”

Kevin Wozniak heads Georgia Tech’s Office of Industry Engagement, which facilitates industry-sponsored research, international research, licensing, and new venture agreements. His team assists campus innovators and industry partners as they move new technologies and discoveries out of Georgia Tech and into the mainstream of the U.S. economy.
