Meeting Description:

Government funding for science is declining, causing academics to look to industry sources to support their research programs. At the same time, the disruptive technologies generated by high-risk research are becoming ever more valuable to industries looking to establish a competitive edge. What seems like a match made in heaven is often fraught with difficulty due to one primary intricacy: Intellectual Property.

What are the common pitfalls?

How do you strike an agreement you won't later regret?

What can you learn from IP success stories?

In this webinar hosted by the OSA Display Technology Technical Group, our presenters Dr. Carl Rosendahl (Carnegie Mellon) and Dr. V. Michael Bove Jr. (MIT) will discuss how to create successful IP partnerships at both the undergraduate and graduate research levels. Position you research or your company for the future by joining the conversation!

What You Will Learn:

  • Two Principle Investigators (PI's) will share their decades-long experience successfully navigating IP issues between academia and industry.

Who Should Attend:

  • Industry and academic leaders looking to form partnerships involving intellectual property.
