Tech Commercialization WEBINAR VIDEO

University Patents and the Road from Invention Disclosure to Technology Commercialization

On March 1, 2017, Karen MacDonald, Business & Entrepreneurship Outreach Librarian, Doug Kubinski, Associate General Counsel, and Stephen Roberts, Director of Research & Technology Commercialization, led an online discussion on patenting and commercializing university technology. The panel discussed patent search resources, steps necessary to protect your patentable discoveries, university royalty distribution policy, and the technology commercialization process. 

This webinar is ideal for all Kent State faculty and staff, but only so many were able to tune in live.

Now you can watch the webinar here.
