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. 

Tech Transfer Central’s 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.

Proven Strategies for Reducing TTO Patent Expenses without Sacrificing Quality

See below for individual session details:

Session One:
How University TTOs Can Slash Patent Expenses While Improving Patent Quality

In today’s tight financial climate, you might be tempted to simply reduce the number of patent applications your office files. But for TTOs that haven’t put the many components of patent-related expenses under the microscope and developed strategies to streamline, you may be amazed by the huge savings you can realize without cutting the quantity of applications or the quality of prosecution.

You will not get abstract concepts and theoretical improvements when you attend this practical, how-to, nuts-and-bolts program. You’ll 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.

Session Two:
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 — an approach that can cost you thousands of extra dollars in the long run. You CAN cut out the middle man, save money and preserve more of your budget — all while securing high quality international patent protection. This crucial webinar will teach you how.
