Stephen Auvil to Speak on ACTiVATE Program at International Conference on Women's Entrepreneurship

Stephen Auvil, of UMBC's Office of Technology Development and the ACTiVATE Program, is invited to speak at the FemStart Conference in Stuttgart, Germany from February 14-15. The ACTiVATE Program will be featured as a best practice for training women to commercialize technology out of universities.

FemStart is an initiative funded by the European Commission’s 6th Framework Programme for Research and Technology within the Science and Society Priority. It will start a public debate on the issue of how female scientists can be motivated to start their own businesses after university.
