Established in 1992, as the US-Japan Technology Management Center, the US-Asia Technology Management Center (US-ATMC) is an education and research center located at Stanford University.
US-ATMC programs aim at integrating practical perspectives into international strategic technology management along with analysis of research trends in selected areas of leading-edge technologies.
The goal of US-ATMC educational programs is to provide Stanford students in various technical fields, and the science and engineering research community at large, with knowledge and analytical capabilities in our areas of focus that will be important to success in the Twenty-First Century.
At the same time, the US-ATMC provides unique resources to Stanford’s research infrastructure for following and analyzing international trends in selected research areas.
As part of our practical focus, the US-ATMC aims to promote meaningful interaction between the university and industry through an active outreach program of public events and Internet-based information exchange. In addition, from 2017 the US-ATMC has been designated as an Industry Affiliates Program, which opens up new avenues for industry cooperation in our areas of research. Many of the member companies in our affiliates program are sending Visiting Scholars to engage with us in cooperative research while in residence at Stanford for up to a one-year term (renewable for a second year).
Throughout its 25+ year history, the US-ATMC has continually delivered up-to-date knowledge and perspectives into the rapidly evolving landscape of innovation and technology management in Asia and its connections to Silicon Valley. Our public programs and Internet websites have often incorporated challenging new formats and leading-edge delivery technologies.
