BELFAST, United Kingdom -- AURIL (Association for University Research and Industry Links), Europe's largest organization for knowledge transfer professionals (a field also known as "technology transfer"), has signed a multi-year Memorandum of Understanding with Technology Transfer Tactics (TTT), a Florida-based publisher of continuing professional development content on the commercialization of university research.
The agreement highlights AURIL's recognition that TTT-produced materials (newsletters, audioconferences, books) "can have educational value to knowledge transfer professionals," and provides a mechanism for AURIL members to obtain these resources at discounted prices.
David Schwartz, TTT's CEO, echoed the MoU in saying, "Recognizing that AURIL is one of the world's leading organizations for knowledge transfer professionals, we're delighted to make these information products available to AURIL members at a significant cost savings.
Both groups will cooperate in publicizing this new arrangement to AURIL members.
Originally established in the 1980s, AURIL has over 1600 members, located primarily in the UK and Ireland, and is acknowledged as the largest knowledge transfer association for practitioners in organizations engaged in knowledge transfer.
