5 Peace and Prosperity Through Science and Collaboration TTO MISSION STATEMENT The mission of the Technology Transfer Office is to identify and protect University-developed intellectual property and serve as a catalyst for economic development by creating partnerships with business and industry to further research and license inventions for public use. Commercializing technologies that result from State University research can lead to the development of new industries and jobs for the public benefit. 5

6 Peace and Prosperity Through Science and Collaboration Technology Transfer at SUNY Last updated: July 25, 2005 Back to Table of Contents TTO Corporate Indicators Introduction The five Technology Transfer Offices (TTOs) of The Research Foundation of State University of New York identify and protect SUNY intellectual capital, help faculty market their inventions, and create partnerships with industry to further research and commercialize SUNY-developed technologies. Faculty at the State University of New York conduct some of the most sophisticated and complex research in the world. State University researchers pioneered nuclear magnetic resonance imaging, introduced time- lapse photography of forestry subjects, isolated the bacteria that causes Lime disease, and developed the first implantable heart pacemaker. SUNY's revenue sharing policy gives its inventors 40 percent of the gross royalty revenues received by the Research Foundation, with multiple inventors splitting the revenue based on the shares indicated on an invention disclosure. To a growing extent, the scientific and technical developments emanating from research are being translated into new American products, markets and jobs. 6

7 Peace and Prosperity Through Science and Collaboration Technology Transfer Facts In FY 2005 the Research Foundation was awarded 34 U.S. patents. Technology transfer staff executed 78 new licensing and option agreements, received 245 invention disclosures, and filed 193 patent applications. In FY 2005 State University of New York inventions generated $13.5 million in royalties. The State University of New York is ranked the 14th largest patent producer among all public and private universities, just behind Harvard University and Cornell University, according to the most recent Association of University Technology Managers (AUTM) Licensing Survey: FY The State University of New York ranks 17th among U.S. colleges and universities for royalties received on inventions licensed to industry, according to the FY 2003 AUTM survey. In the FY 2003 AUTM survey, the State University of New York earned more income from royalties than Johns Hopkins University, University of Michigan, University of Pennsylvania, and Carnegie Mellon University. The Research Foundation (on behalf of SUNY) is ranked 10th among New York State organizations in number of patents received between , according to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The Research Foundation is ahead of Carrier Corp., Siemens Aktiengesellschaft, General Motors Corp., Lockheed Martin Corp., Bausch & Lomb Inc. and Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. 7

15 Peace and Prosperity Through Science and Collaboration How to Think Like Einstein 15

16 Peace and Prosperity Through Science and Collaboration How to Think Like Einstein Think out side the box 16

17 Peace and Prosperity Through Science and Collaboration How to Think Like Einstein Think out side the box Break the rules 17

18 Peace and Prosperity Through Science and Collaboration Breaking the Rules Rule breaking is a focused, deliberate way of finding solutions. If you have been unable to find a solution among all acceptable alternatives, then you must examine the impossible alternatives. You must break some rules. 18

19 Peace and Prosperity Through Science and Collaboration Breaking the Pattern Einstein was most successful when he was willing to consider anything, particularly ridicules ideas. Breaking patterns tears you out of your rut by generating the novel ideas that you are usually too practical to consider. 19

20 Peace and Prosperity Through Science and Collaboration Let Us Dream To find the possibilities in impossible places 20

21 Peace and Prosperity Through Science and Collaboration During our lifetimes we may come up with at least 10 inventions that go unrecognized. These intellectual properties may include software and literary and artistic works as well as new devices, methods and processes. What Is Intellectual Property? 21

22 Peace and Prosperity Through Science and Collaboration DEFINITION OF A PATENT An idea A process An application A product An improvement A new part of old gadget ALL OF THE ABOVE 22

23 Peace and Prosperity Through Science and Collaboration How Does The Inventor Benefit? Inventors receive 40 percent of the gross royalty received by the Research Foundation. In fiscal 2003 royalties generated by SUNY inventions exceeded $13 million. Inventors receive special recognition for submitting an invention disclosure and for being awarded a patent. 23

24 Peace and Prosperity Through Science and Collaboration Does My Invention Have Commercial Value? Submit your idea to the Technology Transfer Office for evaluation. The TTO will conduct a search for similar patents and prepare a Market Opportunity Analysis (MOA) to determine its commercial value and what companies may be interested. Based on the MOA and the industry contact, the TTO will apply for a patent. 24
