Public-Private Partnerships: Transferring Discoveries Out of Universities
May 10, 2013
Intellectual property developed in the state’s major universities has the potential to be a key contributor to the continued strength of the life sciences industry in Indiana. However, there can be legal, financial and cultural barriers making the commercial translation of ideas to useable products hard to realize. Entrepreneurs, investors, life sciences industry business development people and university tech transfer officers will share some of their “war stories” and discuss the opportunities and the pitfalls that challenge life science innovations coming to fruition.
