SIG-5 Where Are All the Women Inventors?
Target Audience: Advanced
Tamsen Barrett, Norton Rose Fulbright US LLP
Women professors at universities submit their work to technology transfer offices at a lower rate than their male counterparts. Research shows that this may have less to do with the patentability of their work than with social norms, networks and support. We’ll highlight these concerns and discuss ways the situation can be righted. Comments, suggestions and debate will be welcomed.
