  • Managing IP in collaborative projects

The course will begin by highlighting the need to carefully manage IP created in collaborative projects, such as Horizon 2020 and other research consortia, so that the creators secure sufficient scope to take the IP forward to commercialisation.

  • The Technology Transfer Process
The technology transfer process will be explained and case studies presented to illustrate the process involved in transferring an inventory of technology to a potential licensee for evaluation.
  • The Technology Transfer Package
The preparation of an inventory of items required to perform a successful transfer of technology and the process involved will be illustrated by examples.
