Data licensing and monetization deals have exploded in recent years among research institutions, so understanding the revenue potential clinical data sets hold in a variety of technology arenas, along with knowing how to handle patient data sharing and consent, has become critical for tech transfer, IP, and research professionals.

An informal study conducted by tech transfer professionals has revealed certain trends in managing and licensing data, offering valuable insight into current practices of TTOs across the country, while providing important guidance in addressing the many challenges associated with data licensing.

That’s why we’ve teamed up with two attorneys from Amster, Rothstein and Ebenstein, LLP, as well as a data licensing expert from Owkin, to bring you this practical and timely webinar:
