Technology Transfer webinar 3: Managing a Nanotechnology Patent Portfolio

April 26 2016

What are current approaches for creating, managing and extracting value from IP in nanotechnology?

Nanotechnology-based inventions are found in end applications as diverse as biomedicine, information technology, electronics, apparel, energy production, lithography, aerospace engineering and molecular robotic manufacturing.  However, the fact that nanotechnology is a relatively new field presents challenges in managing a nanotechnology-based patent estate and when negotiating, drafting, and complying with nanotechnology licensing agreements.

Topics learned during this webinar :

The following are among the unique issues that must be considered when managing a nanotechnology IP estate:

  • Overlap in nanotechnology patents has created a “patent thicket” 
  • How patents can be used most effectively in conjunction with trade secrets in protecting nanotechnology
  • Nanotechnology-based inventions often present unique technological issues relevant to licensing considerations
  • How cross-licensing can counter the patent thicket in nanotechnology
  • How difficulties in reverse engineering affect policing infringement
  • How difficulties in up-scaling nanotech affect commercialization timetables

Speaker: Sarah Korman is Senior Intellectual Property & Litigation Counsel at Amgen, Inc.
Organiser: EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation - Brussels Office.
Moderator: Luca Escoffier is a Project Manager of the EU-Japan Technology Transfer Helpdesk.
