5 5 – 31 new collaboration agreements – 50 active collaboration agreements – 46 canadian partners (92%) Distribution of active collaboration agreements in COLLABORATIONS

6 6 IP COMMITTEES Background 2001 Comments 2005 Author – Andy Storer Director Health Sector NRC IPMC Meeting at BRI First IP Committee September 1999

7 7 IP COMMITTEES Background 2001 Comments 2005 Bottleneck in Technology Transfer (Resources) Need to strenghten technologies for patenting 2005

8 8 IP COMMITTEES Background 2001 Comments 2005 Paperwork issues at the beginning Implemented to Bioprocess and Environment Sectors (2001) Follow-up of actions difficult for a long time Structure changes needed 2004/2005 model : mature and functional

9 9 IP COMMITTEES Background 2001 Comments 2005 No change

10 10 IP COMMITTEES Background 2001 Comments 2005 No change

11 11 IP COMMITTEES Background 2001 Comments 2005 Number of total presentations has dropped through the years Number of publications maintained More "parcels" of research presented (gaining 6 months earlier) Comparison checks need to be done Publications vs Presentations Issues with principal authors outside

12 12 IP COMMITTEES Background 2001 Comments 2005 On the spot with the right people, open discussion for screening decision (hold or publish) using simplified criteria: –1º Patentability: new, useful, non obvious (Form 1) –2º Some intuitive market rational –3º Follow-up on research –If more info is needed, postpone decision to next month

13 13 IP COMMITTEES Background 2001 Comments 2005 Duly completed Form 1 and manuscripts are assessed to ensure sufficient data is provided to support a useful scope of claims for patent applications

14 14 IP COMMITTEES Background 2001 Comments 2005 Improvement ongoing for timeline of tasks and actions

18 18 IP COMMITTEES Background 2001 Comments 2005 Cost control was reached in 2004 Less files and better control (IP AUDIT) Culture shift allows the IP integration within daily R&D work A Patent is not something on the side for anyone! Need to link IP Management and Project Management Need resources for technology assessment, marketing and technology transfer 2005

19 19 IP Committees (2004 / 2005 Model) IP COMMITTEE Operation 1 committee per Scientific Sector Environment, Bioprocess, Health) 1 monthly meeting in 2 parts – Scientific presentation (open to all) – PART 1 Decision on protection and/or publication – IP portfolio management – PART 2 Controlling fees and follow-ups on files, with actions of protection and marketing Composition : – Sector Director (presides meeting) – Director of Industrial Affairs – Group leaders (3 permanents/18 months) – 1 Patent Agent (IPS Ottawa) – 1 IP Coordinator – 2 Business Development Officers (BDOs) Separate work-meetings for prioritary files – Valuation of technology – Strategy and actions to ensure Technology Transfer
