Black Graduate and professional students often don't have the chance to connect and build friendships with students in different programs, and what's a better way to meet than over coffee?! Twice per month 5 to 6 participants will be chosen via random lottery to share conversation and coffee, on us!

This semester each meeting will be held virtually to comply with Public Health guidance given the ongoing pandemic. Coffee Break attendees will receive a e-gift card to their prefered coffee shop. This is a great opportunity to meet members of BGPSO in different programs, create lasting connections, and discover new coffee shops!

This semester's Coffee Break Dates are: October 21st, November 4th, and November 19th.

Sign Up Here!

This fall, the UVA Licensing & Ventures Group is offering a unique opportunity for UVA graduate students, research residents, and post-doctoral fellows to gain a better understanding of how technology transitions from research projects to commercial products. During a two-part workshop hosted virtually, students will gain insight into the technology transfer process which requires broad scientific expertise, business insight, and legal acumen to convert basic research into practical applications.  Workshop participants will be exposed to all elements of intellectual property management and learn the necessary steps involved in effectively protecting and commercializing the results of scientific research. Students will learn how to evaluate an invention disclosure, prepare non-confidential summaries, and identify prospective industry partners. The LVG licensing team will also explain the negotiation of business terms of various agreements that govern university technology transfer. 

For more information, please click here to download a copy of the vent flyer.
