  8. 9. Collaboration principles <ul><li>Mutual benefit (access to know-how, agility - flexible funding, access to instrumentation) </li></ul><ul><li>Reasonable charges (100-150% overhead on labor cost) </li></ul><ul><li>Maintenance and transfer of new IPR (right of first refusal) </li></ul><ul><li>Research collaboration rather than contractual work </li></ul><ul><li>Further development via national (?), European funding </li></ul><ul><li>Knowledge discovery and/or cutting edge technologies </li></ul>
  9. 10. Decision Diagram for the Exploitation of Scientific Discoveries Scientific Discovery Is it Useful? Invention Yes No Does it have an economic Potential? Yes Scientific Publication No Intellectual Property Does it need Protection? Yes No Patent Application No Business Secrete Does is provide Entrepreneurial Basis? No No Yes Technology Transfer Business Plan

  11. 12. Identification of insect chitin synthases BAYER AG Protection of IPR by patents (EPO, JPO, USPTO) Chitin exists in the cuticle and the peritrophic membrane of insects Chitin synthesis is a prime target for of pest control agents { Epicuticle (cuticulin layer) Exocuticle { Endocuticle { Epidermis { Procuticle (chitin and proteins) Synthesis zone Hemolymph
  12. 13. <ul><li>Drug discovery is a excellent ground for fertile industry – academy research collaborations. Thus academy raises its social and technological awareness while industry overcomes its innovation deficit. </li></ul><ul><li>Protection of intellectual property rights and technological awareness are vital for the success of innovation and essential for a balanced and a mutual benefit relation. </li></ul><ul><li>Understanding live and trying to tame it –basic and applied research – are no separate realms. They are mutually dependent. </li></ul>
