SBIR/STTR: What University Staff Should Know


Universities and other nonprofit research institutions continue to face challenges finding funding and technology development opportunities for their organizations. Partnering with small businesses can generate synergies for leveraging greater opportunities, especially when technology managers take the helm to navigate their university and researchers to a successful collaboration. The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs, also known as America's Seed Fund, are some of the largest sources of early-stage capital for technology commercialization in the US. These programs allow US-owned and operated small businesses to engage in federal research and development that has a strong potential for commercialization. These funds are specific budget set-asides reserved for small business research, but universities and nonprofit research institutions can partner with a small business to access these funds as sub-awardees. Under the SBIR program, universities and nonprofit research institutions usually play key roles as collaborators for small businesses, while under the STTR program, the small businesses must formally collaborate with a university or nonprofit research institution to qualify for the funding opportunity. In addition to access to these funds, the SBIR and STTR programs can also provide technology development and licensing opportunities for university-owned technologies. In this session, we'll discuss how for universities, it can be a win-win for those knowing what's available and how to proactively engage for the institution and its researchers.

Drug Repurposing from a University Perspective


The repurposing of therapies for alternative disease indications is an attractive approach that can save significant investments of time and money during drug development. It can also generate highly marketable technologies for the savvy university. Repurposed drugs are generally approved faster, are awarded market approval at a rate three times higher than new drug applications, and at half the cost associated with new drug applications. Academic researchers have successfully begun integrating repurposing into their grant applications from both federal and private donors. In this webinar, we will discuss these themes as well as what, from a university perspective, can lead to a successful program in licensing repurposed drug assets. Particular emphasis will placed on how to develop strong patent strategies for repurposed drug assets.

Talent to Technology: Is Entrepreneur Talent the New Patent


As the number of start-ups spun-out of universities increases, so does the rate at which university start-ups fail. Universities that don't find themselves ensconced in entrepreneurial talent-rich pools like Silicon Valley and New York City likely have a problem: the scope of their institution's research is broader than the immediately accessible talent pool of willing entrepreneurs ready to take management roles of start-ups. Further, a majority of their entrepreneurial faculty may not intend to take entrepreneurial leave or take on a full-time start-up executive management role. The answer lies in increasing access to would-be entrepreneurial executives and more acutely matching their experience with start-ups.

Foreign Filing Considerations & Strategies for Universities


For many universities, the decision whether to file for patent protection for an invention is multi-faceted and challenging. Not only can these filings be expensive, but many foreign countries have patentability and enforcement challenges that are different than those encountered in the United States. Additionally, drafting claims for the US does mean compliance with the rest of the world. In fact, there may be opportunities overseas for subject matter that are difficult to protect in the US. This webinar will examine the requirements for patenting inventions in Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Europe and Japan and provide practical tips for universities to consider when making strategic filing decisions.

Inventorship: Let's Help Each Other

A panel of attorneys and tech transfer experts will help those new to the profession find answers, and provide an opportunity for more seasoned professionals to share their favorite (or most hair-raising) stories.
