Universities – a short or long-term partner for spin-offs?


How does a university decide on its involvement with a spin-off? How do universities handle IP transfer and POC funding? Our panelists will share best practices from their experience of previous and current collaborations. Are there better ways to collaborate on the long-term? Can we choose between long-term or short-term? Is there a different relationship to each case? Is it better to stay friends and call it quit ? Should we define from the beginning what the length of the collaboration will be?

Come and listen to our international panelists discuss this inspiring question, in a session sponsored by AbbVie!
