Track II – Engagement with Young Companies
Serving Start-ups Better with Express Licensing

  15:30 - 17:00

Supporting start-ups is a core competence of nearly every technology transfer office. Part of that process is to grant access for the newco to the core technologies and connected intellectual property. This can often turn out to be a large and complex field, with ample potential for conflict. Express licensing may be one way to resolve this efficiently.

This session will explain express licensing, when and where it is best applied, while providing international examples of best practices that have proven equally useful to TTOs and start-up founders.
