Your TTO’s patent budget is a major line item, and probably the single biggest area where your office can save significant dollars. The technologies you file on, the foreign filing decisions you make, the attorney fees you negotiate, and the firms you use are just some of the key factors that play into whether you spend wisely.

Technology Transfer Tactics’ Distance Learning Division has created a collection of distance learning programs that target key areas within your patent budget that should be redlined for cost and quality reviews. Each program is led by experts in the field and offer strategic takeaways you can implement immediately. The three-program collection includes:

  • How University TTOs Can Slash Patent Expenses While Improving Patent Quality: Learn real-world lessons directly from the hard-fought cost reductions won by Hamid R. Piroozi, JD, an experienced patent attorney who now serves as the associate director in charge of legal affairs for Purdue’s Office of Technology Commercialization.
  • Best Practices for Cost-Effective Filing of PCT and EPO Patent Applications: While foreign patent applications can certainly be handled stateside, many law firms farm out the work to German firms. You can save thousands by cutting out the middle man, while securing high quality international patent protection. This crucial webinar will teach you how.
  • Maximize Your TTO’s Patent Budget through Effective Use of Patent Counsel: There are dozens of specific ways for you to stretch your budget and get more patents filed for less than you currently spend. This program will feature how-to advice that specifically focuses on the needs and concerns of TTOs. You’ll come away with creative strategies for immediate bottom-line benefits, significantly reducing your legal bills while improving the number and overall quality of your patent filings.
