While productivity and sophistication of U.S. technology transfer offices continue to improve, we can learn much from top performing intellectual property (IP) commercialization organizations in the United Kingdom, Europe, Canada and South Africa. Leaders of top functioning groups will discuss licensing and startup business development strategies and license terms, availability and use of university-affiliated investment funds, and the emergence of student entrepreneurial support programs. Learn how different IP ownership and sharing policies can influence organizational structure and staffing. Plus, discover opportunities for subcontracting.
