With Asian, African and South American institutions joining North America and Europe in technology transfer, cross-border collaborations among technology transfer offices will continue to increase. In this workshop we look at various models for these collaborations, including sponsored research and licensing of jointly owned intellectual property to foreign firms; gap funding for startups and small firms in other countries; and offshore investment from angels, venture capitalists, and government research and development programs. Learn from the people who have worked on these collaborations as they explore the structure and legal framework of these partnerships, and how you can overcome hurdles and improve the odds of success for your international collaboration.
