When allocating resources, tech transfer office directors will want to know how to improve the likelihood of obtaining and enforcing patent protection for university-generated research. Obtaining insights directly from a former Administrative Patent Judge will enable tech transfer offices to have a competitive advantage in negotiating tech transfer deals.

During this webinar, attendees will come to understand the appeal process to obtain more robust patent protection and be able to describe how universities and partner companies can enforce patent protection by defeating challenges to patent validity at the Patent Trial and Appeal Board.

Universities face increasing litigation over their innovations as they defend their most important patents and further seek to monetize these portfolios where possible.

With several universities having success in recent patent litigation matters, more universities appear interested in protecting and enforcing their intellectual property. Combined with additional court cases limiting some aspects of sovereign immunity, universities will face increasing litigation over their innovations as they defend their most important patents and further seek to monetize these portfolios where possible.

In this webinar, we will provide an overview of recent patent litigation cases involving university technology transfer and discuss the pros and cons of protecting, enforcing, and litigating your university's patents and intellectual property considering these recent developments.

Defining the Tech Transfer Office of the Future

This webinar will be recorded live on November 9, 2021. The recording will be available within 30 days of the event date. You may pre-order the recording here.

While there is no one-size-fits-all model for tech transfer offices at universities, many are moving beyond the transactional and expanding the scope and responsibilities to demonstrate impact. As more and more departments touch entrepreneurship and innovation, tech transfer offices must identify new ways to partner for success, compete for resources, seek in funding opportunities, define the role within the academic innovation ecosystem, and earn a seat at the table.

Join us for a presentation and robust discussion on what the future holds for the profession including:

  • Should tech transfer offices' roles move towards or away from transactional work? How do we transition from technology transfer to innovation management?
  • How do tech transfer offices fit in the expanding role and size of the academic innovation ecosystems?
  • What non-traditional funding opportunities exist for growth

Why Royalty Risk Assessment & Compliance Program Makes Cents

Now more than ever, there is an increased need to develop and to conduct an ongoing royalty risk assessment program of your licensee portfolio. The current and projected growth of royalty income associated with technology transfer activities, the increasing number of sources of royalty income, and the complexity associated with the terms and calculation of university and research institution royalty entitlements, are all reasons to learn risk assessment and royalty compliance strategies. This webinar will discuss both, as well as how to build a framework to assess key licensee risks.

Impact of I-Corps: A 10-Year Retrospective

Join us as we look back on the impact the I-Corps customary discovery methodology has had on the commercialization of university research. Participants will have the chance to learn from three I-Corps Program Directors who will share their personal observations and perspectives while addressing the impact of I-Corps in the last ten years.

This session will begin with a presentation on the genesis of I-Corps by looking at the founding principles that led to the formation of the NSF program. Next, participants will hear about the cooperative, interagency partnership that led to the start of the I-Corps at NIH Program. Through success stories and real life-clinical impacts, you'll discover the lasting effects of this program and understand the differences between the NSF and NIH curriculum. Finally, participants will hear the university perspective of leveraging the program. Hear the impact of entrepreneurship training and success factors for academic spinoffs and how I-Corps can be applied in other areas.

I-Corps applicants and administrators alike will benefit from attending this session. Applicants will earn how to prepare competitive proposals, understand what makes a good commercialization team and discover what universities can do to make their programs stronger and their startup teams stronger. Administrators will learn how they can successfully run sites through a discussion of what techniques have worked well, what things haven't worked as expected, and what lessons the directors have taken away pre/post-Covid.

Using US Seed Fund to Expand University Innovation Ecosystem

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

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.
