TTO Faculty Seminar: Patent Strategies and Technology Commercialization (a Case Study)
Wednesday, March 18, 2009, noon to 1:00pm
Lunch available at 11:45
ATLAS 229, CU-Boulder
This “Patents 201” seminar will present a case study (based on two patent portfolios from Chris Bowman, Associate Dean for Research in the CU-Boulder College of Engineering) illustrating how patent decisions affect commercial pathways for CU technologies. Find out how decisions made in the patenting process can increase the value of your technology, and how commercialization decisions may influence patent prosecution.
Christopher Bowman was appointed Associate Dean for Research in the College of Engineering and Applied Science starting August 2007. He holds the James and Catherine Patten Endowed Chair and previously served as chair of the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering from 2003 to 2007. He also has a joint appointment at the UC Denver School of Dentistry. Technology developed by Dr. Bowman and collaborators has been optioned/licensed to many established companies, including 3M, Septodont and InDevR, as well as to start-up companies such as EndoShape and 3QMatrix.
This event is free and open to CU faculty from all campuses. Lunch will be provided – please RSVP by via email.
