Chapter 6: Policy advocacy and organizational change at the Association of University Technology Managers (AUTM)

Christopher S Hayter and Jacob H Rooksby

Abstract

The Association of University Technology Managers (“AUTM”) is the industry group of professionals responsible for technology transfer at universities in the US and, increasingly, other parts of the world. This Chapter explores AUTM’s history and evolving organizational structure, particularly as it relates to its ability to effectively participate in policy advocacy involving intellectual property and technology transfer issues. Drawing on interviews with key stakeholders and other research, the Chapter identifies three distinct eras within the history of AUTM and explores the organization’s involvement in policy advocacy efforts over time. The authors conclude that the organization’s current structure places it on its strongest footing yet and predict that AUTM’s voice in national and even international policy discussions involving intellectual property and technology transfer will only continue to strengthen.
