This session explores the elements required for a successful technology transfer between various sites. It is intended for anyone who may be involved in the transfer of information between groups or sites. This includes both internal transfers as well as transfers to a third party. Upon completion of this session, the attendee will have a greater understanding of the process and what is required to ensure a higher probability of success. 

Transfer of knowledge between groups is a key part of any drug development. Many projects end up with setbacks due to an incomplete or incorrect transfer of information due to lack of understanding on the part of the team(s) performing the transfer as well as the teams receiving the information.
