  3. 3. IP COMMERCIALIZATION IP (Industrial Property) refers to intangible property such as inventions, industrial designs, trademarks which can be protected under national and international intellectual property laws. Commercialization is defined as process of moving an innovative concept from idea stage to market place (Siegel et al 1995) It is not a simple linear process but a complex process involving many actors in many capacities, the process requires skills such as product development, market assessment, finance, market strategy, manufacturing etc (Kathleen 2003) This presentation specifically refers to patent as its principle source of Industrial Property.

  4. 4. COMMERCIALIZATION PROCESS Commercialization process maybe different in each organization but the basic principles are same. (C) AMJAD A SHAIKH 2013 Research Invention Disclosure IP Protection IP Assessment IP Development Commercial route (licensing or Spin off)
  5. 5. BARRIERS TO COMMERCIALIZATION Lack of information Lack of capacity (human skills) Lack of capital Lack of understanding of local needs High transaction costs Trade and policy barriers Institutional and structural barriers Regulations Environmental codes and standards Technology challenges (C) AMJAD A SHAIKH 2013
  6. 6. BARRIERS COULD BECOME POTENTIAL RISKS If a concept or IP is committed for commercialization this barriers could become risk due to commitment of resources and time. These risks should be identified and systematically evaluated so that the failure to commercialization could be averted at very early stage. (C) AMJAD A SHAIKH 2013

  9. 9. IP IDENTIFICATION • IP policy is key as it sets rules for IP ownership, IP identification, Inventor obligations, Inventor Incentives for commercialization. IP Policy • IP Identification is first step in the commercialization process. IP Identify • Reactive and Proactive approach • Proactive approach is to conduct disclosure scouting Approach (C) AMJAD A SHAIKH 2013
  10. 10. IP IDENTIFICATION • Use combination of reactive and active approach.Identification • Set clear rules for IP ownership and incentives in IP policy.Ownership • Define criterion and develop capacity for processing IP.Capacity (C) AMJAD A SHAIKH 2013
  11. 11. IP PROTECTION The objective of protecting IP is to encourage the creation of valuable ideas and to protect them from being stolen. Organizations differ in practice of protecting IP some follow highly selective procedures and protect only after thorough market analysis. While some protects as long as the invention fulfills expectation of potential value. They also differ on which inventions need to be protected and which route to go for their commercialization.

  14. 14. IP ASSESSMENT • It allows technologies with more commercial potential to be developed in ways that enhance the chances of successful commercialization Enhance • It helps in deciding whether to continue developing the technology or continue resource in obtaining IP protection. Decide • It also helps in identifying what types of business and industries maybe interested in the technology. Identify (C) AMJAD A SHAIKH 2013 Early evaluation system brings following advantages
  15. 15. EVALUATION In General early technology evaluation is still considered as an art rather science, this is due to following factors i. Technology is neither visible nor tangible ii. Difficult to identify exact contents and scope iii. Economic value cannot be rightly estimated and realized only after it is commercialized to the market. (C) AMJAD A SHAIKH 2013
  16. 16. EVALUATION METHODS Among various evaluation methods intuitive judgment to complex option models are used and others such as (C) AMJAD A SHAIKH 2013 1 • SWOT Analysis 2 • Market Opportunity Analysis 3 • Business Plan 4 • STEP (Strategic Technology Evaluation Program)

  18. 18. IP DEVELOPMENT Initial IP assessment not only answers key questions on commercial potential but also identifies the questions that need to be answered. Proof of concept program is designed to obtain answers to this questions. (C) AMJAD A SHAIKH 2013
  19. 19. PROOF OF CONCEPT (PoC) The Proof of Concept awards are designed to provide financial support at the very early stages of developing a concept that may have commercial potential. The funding can be used, for example: for developing a business plan, market testing, prototyping, pilot testing etc (C) AMJAD A SHAIKH 2013
