Center for Sustainable Materials Chemistry (CSMC) Innovation Webinar: "Intellectual Property, Tech Transfer and YOU"

Description:

The basis for most ventures based on discoveries in science and engineering is their inventions—their intellectual property. And the importance of protecting intellectual property—these all important intangible assets—in an appropriate way becomes a key factor in the ability of any researcher to realize the translation of their research to a marketable product or service!

But how can research be protected? What are the options for protecting your intellectual property? What is the role of the Tech Transfer office in protecting and commercializing university IP? What are the roles of students, post docs and professors in this protection process? What are the similarities and differences in protecting intellectual property for new materials and their uses from other types of inventions?

Please join our panel of experts in exploring this all important topic in this second in our ongoing series of Innovation Webinars presented by the Center for Sustainable Materials Chemistry (CSMC) at Oregon State University.

The distinguished panelists for this webinar are:
• Dr. Mary Foley Phillips, Associate Director – Intellectual Property and Licensing, Oregon State University
• Stacey C. Slater, Partner, Klarquist Sparkman, LLP
• Dr. Judith Giordan, Partner in ecosVC and Senior Advisor to the National Collegiate Inventors and Innovators Alliance (NCIIA), will be moderating the panel.

Funded through grants from the National Science Foundation and ONAMI, this FREE series is being developed in conjunction with the National Collegiate Inventors and Innovators Alliance (NCIIA) and ecosVC with the aim of providing STEM graduate students, faculty and post docs with knowledge on the rewards and benefits of learning the language of innovation—and the skills to translate their research into solutions to the challenges facing people and the planet!
