Best Practices for Performing Provisional Patent Conversion Evaluations

By Jesse Schwartz
Published: February 28th, 2018

The decision whether to maintain patent protection on a discovery when it comes time to convert a provisional application is not one to be taken lightly. Patent budgets, research priorities, strength of the IP, interest among potential licensees, and faculty egos and relationships with the TTO weigh heavily on the decision-making process.

It’s vital to map out an evaluation plan that serves to protect your IP with true market potential while also keeping costs in check and fulfilling your service mission to faculty. It’s a delicate balance, and you must be armed with supportable criteria and have a high level of confidence to justify your decisions.

That’s why we’ve teamed up with Rakhi Gibbons, Associate Director of Biomedical & Life Sciences Licensing at Tech Launch Arizona, for this important webinar: Best Practices for Performing Provisional Patent Conversion Evaluations, scheduled for March 14.
