IP audits are essential to properly manage your university’s IP portfolio. To fully understand the commercial potential as well as the risks – in many cases involving hundreds of individual IP assets — a regular and systematic review process is an absolute must.

Without it, you could be losing out on significant revenue opportunities, overlooking litigation risks, and missing critical deadlines and filing requirements that could even cost you the rights to that IP.

That’s why Technology Transfer Tactics’ Distance Learning Division has created this detailed program led by a team of expert attorneys from the law firm Offit Kurman.
