Technology Licensing

ITP 6305 4 Quarter Hours
Course Level CPS - Graduate
Description Offers students an opportunity to learn practical skills necessary for successful technology transfer in both academic and industrial sectors (focusing on the biopharmaceutical sector). Commercialization of technology from academia to industry occurs at the intersection of science, business, and law. Interdisciplinary skills are necessary for successful technology licensing. Since technology commercialization is a relatively new profession and training is primarily on the job, many professionals lack fundamental skills. This course emphasizes practice-oriented valuation of technology and intellectual property (IP); market research; and use of financial, legal (contract and licensing law), and scientific information for negotiation of technology licenses. Examines ethical considerations encountered in university-to-industry relations, such as conflict of interest, legal, and IP issues arising among government, academia, and industry.


Students should refer to the CPS Prerequisite Table for course prerequisite and corequisite information.
