The short-term and long-term impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic are continuing to unfold and affect the technology transfer life cycle: from new disclosure intake to the commercialization landscape. This webinar discussed best practices for how tech transfer offices can partner with their outside counsel to (1) maintain robust patent filing and portfolio management strategies despite the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, (2) manage the uncertainty of public disclosures during a global pandemic, (3) face the challenges of maintaining inventor relationships despite work-from-home arrangements, and (4) navigate the startup landscape.
