In this presentation, Asha Rajagopal, Assistant Director for Technology Commercialization, will provide an overview of how OTC can help protect researchers’ intellectual property, how to obtain licensable patents, and the process of licensing inventions to existing or new companies – moving commercially valuable research results out of the lab and into the marketplace.
As a researcher you will also learn how to establish long-term, mutually beneficial relationships with inventors, industry and government partners and how to communicate commercialization opportunities to investors and industry.
