In recent years, data output among research institutions has expanded exponentially. And while virtually all institutions have patent policies in place covering ownership and handling of patentable inventions, data policies are still very mixed and sometimes completely absent. As more and more institutions monetize their data, the importance of a well-considered institutional data policy has become critical.

That’s why Tech Transfer Central’s Distance Learning Division has teamed up with two attorneys from Amster, Rothstein and Ebenstein, LLP, along with data licensing experts from both MIT and Duke University, to bring you this critical presentation:

Reinforcing University IP Policies to Protect Data Ownership & Monetization

Register today to learn how to examine your existing IP policies for all types of data coverage, identify gaps that need reinforcing, and gain a solid understanding of the controlling federal regulations as well as potential liabilities.  Our world-class panel will also cover licensing and royalty distribution issues, along with risks and best practices related to data storage, retention, and access.

Here’s a quick look at the agenda:

  • Understanding the licensing potential for clinical data sets in a variety of technology arenas including:
    • Life Sciences
    • Artificial Intelligence and Big Data
    • Relational Databases
  • Data ownership issues
  • Identifying gaps in IP policy data coverage
  • Data storage, retention and access considerations
  • How to get data producers to apprise the TTO of the data
  • How data can be monetized
  • Licensing considerations
  • Distribution of income received from monetized data
