This case study from the Medical College of Wisconsin’s (MCW) Office of Technology Developments (OTD) will be the model that helps you develop a team of internal and external experts for your technology transfer office. The MCW 3-step evaluation process is designed to be a surrogate for industry. Learn how to objectively and transparently review technologies, make informed and timely decisions and provide multiple opportunities for communication with inventors throughout the entire process. Hear how the development of a Technology Evaluation Committee (TEC) brings together internal experts and external industry, investment and legal experts to evaluate intellectual property with respect to patentability, addressable market and commercialization potential. A written technology disclosure report adds value to the subsequent review by prospective industry partners and investors. The process culminates with input from senior leadership. Discover the entire process, the potential outcome at each level and the benefits and advantages of leveraging the combined expertise of the team members.
