Thursday, September 20, 2018; 1:00-2:30pm EST
$199 for NACRO members, $299 for non-members
Intellectual property management is a complex process, and as corporate relations professionals, a high level understanding of the technology transfer office within our universities can add significant value to our industry partnerships. This webinar will start with an overview of the core elements of technology transfer, including what a patent is and why it’s important to make sure we’re all on the same page with respect to university intellectual property. From there, the bulk of the presentation will focus on the value of partnering with your technology office, understanding who your faculty inventors are and what this can mean to a corporate partner, including how you can leverage this information to advance engagement with a particular company. Investing the time to form a relationship with individuals in your technology transfer office, and understand the role they play within the university, can help support stronger industry partnerships to the benefit of your campus.
