IP and Royalty Audits for Tech Transfer Offices

A Three-Session Distance Learning Collection
Format: On-Demand Video/Transcript, or DVD
Price: $347

IP audits and royalty audits are essential to properly manage your university’s IP portfolio, and to ensure you’re not only pursuing assets with high potential but also addressing existing licensee activity. Making sure your IP is moving forward – and your licensees are meeting their obligations – is a critical function of any well-run TTO.

Regular and systematic review processes and procedures are absolute musts. Without them, you could be losing out on significant revenue opportunities, overlooking litigation risks, missing critical deadlines and filing requirements, and letting significant royalty dollars slip away.  

That’s why Technology Transfer Tactics’ Distance Learning Division has curated this collection of distance learning programs. IP and Royalty Audits for Tech Transfer Offices features three strategy-filled sessions that provide a detailed roadmap for assessing your IP portfolio for risks and opportunities, and assessing licensee compliance with development and payment obligations.
