Managing University Patent Annuities: How to Save Money While Increasing Productivity

As worldwide annuity payments consume a greater and greater portion of the patent budget for many universities, it is imperative to be able to accurately forecast and budget for these expenses – and keep them from spiraling out of control. Equally critical is making sure your staff doesn’t spend too much time tracking and managing annuity deadlines and payments, while also ensuring timeliness and 100% accuracy given the potential for surcharges, late fees, and even loss of patent rights.

For many TTOs, their outside law firm is still the default choice for handling annuities, but a growing number of offices are opting for less expensive options, including third-party providers and in-house management systems.

To help you weigh the options and determine what’s right for your organization — and potentially save tens of thousands of dollars across your IP portfolio – Tech Transfer Central has teamed up with Gregg Banninger, Patent Coordinator in the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign’s Office of Technology Management, to lead this essential webinar: Managing University Patent Annuities: How to Save Money While Increasing Productivity, scheduled for November 21.
