SIG16 Technology Transfer Offices and Foundations: Developing a Synergistic Partnership
Target Audience: All Audiences
Maureen Japha, FasterCures
Felice Lu, University of California System
Research contracts with non-profit foundations have evolved to include a greater number of increasingly complex intellectual property terms that come into play during the commercialization and licensing process. This SIG provides a forum for university technology managers to discuss ways to work with foundations to build synergistic partnerships. We will discuss the progress made during recent meetings with foundations, and also generate ideas for addressing university and foundation concerns in licensing so that universities and foundations can work together more productively.
