Using US Seed Fund to Expand University Innovation Ecosystem

This webinar will be recorded live on July 13, 2021. The recording will be available within 30 days of the event date. You may pre-order the recording here.

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and National Institutes of Health (NIH) will share how America’s Seed Fund - the Small Business Innovation Research/ Small Business Technology Transfer (SBIR/STTR) programs - enables the transition of university-based research. Beyond the $4 billion each year of funding to startups, complementary programs enable academics and startups to translate research discoveries into innovative technologies.

SBA will share how to tap into initiatives like the Federal and State Technology (FAST) Partnership program and Growth Accelerator Fund Competition, as well as opportunities to inspire students to become entrepreneurs.

NIH will discuss resources available to academic and small business innovators to translate academic discoveries into commercial products that improve patient health, including the NIH’s Proof-of-Concept Network (POCN), a nationwide public-private network of 15 centers and hubs spanning more than 100 universities and colleges and offering feasibility funding and entrepreneurship training and mentorship.

Researcher Liaisons for TTOs: A Valuable Partnership

This webinar will be recorded live on June 15, 2021. The recording will be available within 30 days of the event date. You may pre-order the recording here.

Successful technology transfer programs depend upon close collaborations between the tech transfer office (TTO) and researchers. Building and maintaining these collaborations can be challenging, particularly if an organization has many more researchers than TTO staff. To expand the reach and impact of its TTOs, the U.S. Dept. of Energy trialed a “Technology Transfer Researcher Liaison” project. The trained Liaisons served as embedded technology scouts, local subject matter experts, and TTO ambassadors. Join us at this session to hear about the lessons learned from the trial, and suggestions you can implement in your TTO to recruit liaisons, assess their impact, and replicate this program.

Best Practices for Competitive Patent Analyses and FTOs

This webinar will be recorded live on June 8, 2021. The recording will be available within 30 days of the event date. You may pre-order the recording here.

Technology-based startups need a strong patent strategy that includes an analysis of competitive patents. But there is an inherent tension between the need for a competitive patent analysis and the startup’s limited financial resources. This webinar will focus on best practices for pursuing competitive patents, plus freedom to operate analyses that satisfy the obligations to avoid willful infringement, all while staying within the budget constraints of a startup.

To understand the legal rules as they currently stand, we will discuss the 2016 Halo ruling on willful patent infringement. We will also examine this topic from the point of view of a university technology transfer office (TTO) as a licensor of patent applications. How far should the TTO go with its Freedom to Operate analysis, and what is the TTO’s obligation to the prospective licensee? Lastly, we will suggest best practices for startups and TTOs for Freedom to Operate analyses.

Artificial Intelligence and Intellectual Property

This webinar will be recorded live on June 3, 2021. The recording will be available within 30 days of the event date. You may pre-order the recording here.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is employed in everything from computer-generated imagery (CGI) to medical diagnoses to 3D printing. However, laws have not kept up with AI innovations. The patent laws of most countries (including the U.S.) define an "inventor" as a person, i.e., a human being.
For example, what if a synthetic entity (AI) assists an inventor or author to invent or create - or what if the synthetic entity independently creates - a painting or literature, discovers a medical breakthrough, or produces a 3D article extrapolated from rudimentary data input? Isn’t the AI an inventor or author? Can the AI itself be protected by patents or copyright? How can AI be used as a supporting tool by inventors and patent attorneys? What are the ethical and professional responsibility implications of employing AI? This presentation will define AI and examine questions that will help suggest best practices for using AI and protecting AI-related intellectual property.
