Module 5

Using sponsored research as a pathway to licensing early stage technologies

Duration: 0 Minutes

Completed

Patent licensing negotiations have an extremely high fail rate. This can be down to unfavourable licensing terms or weak patent portfolios. One of the ways universities and industry are trying to bridge the gap between innovation and commercialisation is by working together much earlier. From a university standpoint, their research can be tailored to specific industry needs, as well as having research costs covered. Through the eyes of industry, they can get their hands on the latest research developments and attract the brightest and talented individuals to their businesses. Laura Schoppe, President and Founder of Fuentek, who has years’ experience helping TTO's improve their chances of commercalisation will be joining us to discuss: (1) How to start sourcing strategic sponsorship deals, (2) Where to begin with searching and conversations for partnerships, (3) The benefits of this chosen pathway, i.e. minimising risk

Module 6

How to find new innovation opportunities using technology mapping and IP data

Duration: 0 Minutes

Completed

Mature products, such as smartphones and cars, tend to become very similar – whether they are from different manufacturers or the latest model from the same manufacturer. Speed, power and slight changes in appearance become the focus for many companies. Marketing can make advances through insightful methods to dig deeper into opportunities from unmet needs – but the right science and technology are required to make them real. R&D teams have access to incredible developments in science and technology, such as artificial intelligence and the latest developments in genetics, but struggle to find how to link them with market opportunities. Opportunities become ‘market pull’ or ‘technology push’, without joining together. Innovation opportunities must connect customer needs with science and technology to be more than just ideas or technologies. This webinar will demonstrate how technology mapping can be used to discover new opportunities, whichever direction you start from, and how IP landscapes can then help you to make the right connections.
