Your university has made a significant investment in every patented invention in your TTO’s portfolio. But as every tech transfer professional can attest, the number of patents that lay dormant – unlicensed and all but forgotten except perhaps for costly maintenance fees – is astounding. Too many of these homeless technologies sit collecting dust, but still requiring staff time and budget dollars.
What if there was a way to make every patent in your portfolio work to your advantage?
Register today for this enlightening webinar that will teach you how to monetize or jettison every patent in your portfolio by employing an intricate evaluation method using a strict timeline. The evaluation is backed up by a set of innovative licensing options, or alternatively a rational decision-making process for eliminating non-performing patents and freeing up critical resources. It’s a strategy that has been extremely effective for UNeMed – the tech transfer arm of the University of Nebraska Medical Center — so we’ve asked attorney and UNeMed licensing specialist Joe Runge to lead this detailed webinar:
Successfully Monetize Your Dust-Collecting Patents
In this how-to, strategy-filled program you’ll hear how UNeMed created a lucrative quarterly review process to oversee and maximize every patent’s value. Discover how this process has actually fostered entrepreneurship around seemingly “dead” patents and cut costs by ceasing support for patents with no potential for licensing.
Here’s a quick look at some of the details you’ll hear about:
- Evaluating the underlying technology for new licensing opportunities
- Creating attractive patent bundles
- Involving researchers to adjust strategy
- Forging deals with NPEs or finding other ways to sell patents
- Creating innovative express licensing options
- PLUS! Mr. Runge will answer all of your questions during the live Q&A portion of the program!
