Come learn about patent rights, ownership, and commercialization for inventions and technologies developed at UC Berkeley and LBNL! Every day, Berkeley research scientists are making discoveries with the potential to make a powerful impact on society. In order for these technologies to transition from bench to market, the threshold question is: who owns the invention? Does the university own it? Does the PI or graduate student own it?
This panel discussion will focus on patent rights, ownership, and licensing negotiations for inventions and technologies developed at UC Berkeley and LBNL. Sponsored by the Berkeley Center for Law & Technology.
A Panel Discussion featuring:
• Professor Robert Barr, Executive Director of the Berkeley Center for Law & Technology
• Cheryl Fragiadakis, Head of Technology Transfer at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab
• Braden Penhoet, Executive Director for Innovation and Business Development in the Office of the VC for Research
• Vern Norviel, Partner, Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati
Lunch provided to those who RSVP at http://bercshop-who_owns_your_invention.eventbrite.com/
