Overcoming Joint IP Ownership Challenges in University Research Partnerships

By Jesse Schwartz
Published: April 10th, 2019

In a perfect world, universities would enjoy collaborating on research projects with a myriad of partners, costs would be shared fairly among partners, everyone would agree on IP ownership, and they would live happily ever after. But the real world is far from perfect, and it’s critical that your university’s IP rights are carefully defined and protected when working with other schools, corporations, and other partners. The cost of inadequate preparation and contractual protection can be huge, from hefty litigation costs to invalid patents or loss of IP, not to mention damage to important relationships.

That’s why Technology Transfer Tactics’ Distance Learning Division is teaming up with Rodney Sparks, JD, PhD, from the University of Virginia Licensing & Ventures Group, to discuss how to protect your ownership stake, remain a good research partner, and deal with conflicts when they arise. Please join us on April 25th for this practical and timely webinar: Overcoming Joint IP Ownership Challenges in University Research Partnerships.
