Welcome to Leiden

Expectations of TTOs

TTOs act as an interface between universities/PROs and the innovation ecosystem connecting with industry, SMEs, investors and other stakeholders. Managing intellectual property also means finding a balance between the interests of the academics and the mission of the university.

What expectations do clients and stakeholders have of the TTO? How do these expectations match the mission and vision of the TTO?

These questions, and many more, will be addressed by our professional panel comprising of; academic researchers, departmental heads, a vice-chancellor, a private companies and investors.

WORKSHOP: IMPROVING IP SCOUTING ACTIVITIES

  11:00-13:00
  

Track I: Daily TTO Practice

Any TTO’s output is highly dependent on a large pool of excellent research results and potentially valuable inventions. There are many ways in which TTOs can tackle this activity. In this workshop, we will exchange best-practice models for IP scouting in our respective research organisations.

WORKSHOP: OWNERSHIP AND LICENSING OF KNOW-HOW

  11:00 - 13:00
  

Track II: Legal Update

The recent EU Know-how Directive introduced a specific definition and protection of trade secrets, aimed at promoting investment in acquisitions, and the use and valorization of know-how.

While many private companies build their business model on secret know-how, universities and public research organisations, which have dissemination of knowledge as a core mission, are ill prepared to deal with know-how. Are there best practices to share and pitfalls to avoid?

This workshop will provide an overview of the legal situation, then elaborate on the terms and conditions for licensing or transferring know-how.

WORKSHOP: CREATING VALUE FROM RESEARCH DATA

  15:30 - 17:00
  

Track I: Day to Day Practice

The research environment recognises that research data have a certain value, are in demand, and can be used commercially. In the meantime, efforts are underway to make all research data publicly available.

This workshop aims to clarify the kind of data can be used commercially, under what conditions, and investigate the questions a university must ask itself regarding research data.

WORKSHOP: AGREEMENT WITH PARTNERS BEYOND THE EU

  15:30 - 17:00
  

Track II: Legal Update

Negotiating agreements with commercial partners beyond the EU can present challenges such as; choice of law, tax regulations, liability clauses, and the notorious General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR ).

In this workshop, we shall present the main challenges and discuss how to overcome them. Take this opportunity to learn from each other's experiences, tips and tricks on working outside the EU.

WORKSHOP: CONFLICT RESOLUTION

  15:30 - 17:00
  

Track III: Special Skills

Conflict often seems to be an integral part of working in a TTO. Dealing with disgruntled professors, unhappy management, an ill-informed finance office, a difficult commercial partner, or another bullish TTO, are often part of our daily responsibilities.

The trick is to understand why a conflict arises and how to prevent it escalating out of proportion. This workshop will help you with just that. It will be fun, embarrassing (we guarantee you will recognise some of your own mistakes!) and illuminating.

Open Science: The reality and implications for TTOs

The most recent EU policies encourage the adoption of an Open Science approach to the scientific process based on collaborative effort and results sharing, which aims to ensure the greatest impact of investments put into research and innovation. In addition, private organisations require incentives to undertake the risky investments needed to translate research results into market-ready innovations. The conclusions of a workshop organised by the JRC and the DG Research and Innovation in 2017 show that there are no incompatibilities between IPR and Open Science. However, how can universities strike the right balance between IPR protection and Open Science?

This session will provide participants with a clear understanding of the Open Science approach and its implications for IP management and technology transfer practices.

WORKSHOP: DEALING WITH JOINT INVENTION

  11:00 - 13:00
  

Track I: Day to Day Practice

Joint inventions, with academic partners or industry, can come with bring with them some difficulties; administrative and financial issues must be solved which can be problematic. In the academic world , cost sharing, administrative fees, rights of the leading party are frequently discussed, while industrial partners are keen on the unrestricted use of the technology.

This workshop shall address how to avoid common pitfalls when managing a joint invention project.

WORKSHOP IMPACT CAFÉ: UPGRADE YOURSELF – SSHA TRANSFER TO DEAL WITH BODY-COMPUTER-INTERFACES

  11:00 - 13:00
  

Track III: Special Skills

This Humanities Impact Hub based-workshop will combine the SSHA-perspective with the future-relevant topic “body-computer-interfaces”. Based on three inspiring talks from a company and two SSHA academics we will go through the interactive Impact Café-format in order to find answers for questions like: Which expectations are related to the topic? Which are the core questions that need to be answered? What may SSHA contribute?

Due to the collaboration with Brave New World, the audience of this workshop will consist of KTOs, but also includes the Brave New World community.

Dirty Tricks in Licensing

We have all tried it. We have been tricked when negotiating and sometimes we do not even discover it has happened until it is too late. Other times, we know very well what is happening but do not know how to deal with it.

This speaker will take us down the dark road of dirty tricks we have encountered or will encounter when negotiating licensing agreements. This is your opportunity to get that bit smarter and, perhaps, avoid being tricked altogether.
