Masterclass: Licensing Technologies as a Business Model
January 22, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
Technology transfer can strongly impact economic growth. While we’re really good at developing interesting, disruptive technologies, we might not be so good at turning them into products and making them reach the market. Licensing can be a solution to capitalize on the developed knowledge, it can even become a business model, allowing companies to grow, research and development centers to become highly profitable, generating impact to people, and to economy in general.
In this Masterclass we’ll learn from the best about licensing models and how to properly deal with the licensing process, legally and financially. We’ll focus on real case studies such as the licensing model of the mp3 and H.264 technologies.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Researchers, CTOs and everyone involved in technology transfer processes.
