4 Lund University Innovation System What to do with your findings.. PUBLISH PATENT & COMMERCIALIZE

5 Lund University Innovation System The innovation process..

6 Lund University Innovation System How to pass “the valley of death”.. "societal benefits" ”breakthrough research"

7 Lund University Innovation System Patent Tech Transfer in US University Evaluation of the Invention for patenting Submitting an Invention Disclosure Form (IDF) to the TTO Filing a patent application Licensing the patent Paper Publish the results Biotech & Pharma Start-Up $$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

8 Lund University Innovation System Teachers exemption Research at Swedish universities is produced under the auspices of the so-called ‘teachers exemption’ (intellectual property rights of academic staff), which means: The researchers, not universities, own the rights to research results.

9 Lund University Innovation System “Tech Transfer” at LU LUIS Patent Paper Lund Life Science Incubator Innovator Skåne AB Venture Capital Teknopol Patent attorneys Etc. Biotech & Pharma Start-Up

10 Lund University Innovation System How to pass “the valley of death”.. Proof of Concept with “soft” government money with “harder” money Venture capital

11 Lund University Innovation System Teachers exemption Research at Swedish universities is produced under the auspices of the so- called ‘teachers exemption’ (intellectual property rights of academic staff), which means: The researchers, not universities, own the rights to research results. This is a unique right that provides researchers with great opportunities and responsibilities. Should one publish directly, or first patent to potentially, create public benefits by developing new products and jobs?

12 Lund University Innovation System PubMed is not enough..

13 Lund University Innovation System

14 Why you as a scientist should learn how to search the patent literature! Avoid research on things that are already known Get to know your competition, perhaps you should research something else.. Find practical solutions to problems Investigate the patentability of your research (=commercial potential)

15 Lund University Innovation System Patent information resources My favorites Lens Freepatentsonline Google patent search (US patents) Also recommended (world wide) USPTO Patents (US patents)
