  • Points:We are doing well, but we could do betterI’ll come up with some comparative data since I expect this will come up
  • Points:Even our own faculty do not think we are innovative – much education and outreach to be done. Scholastic achievement and innovation go hand-in-hand
  • Points:There has been due diligence and a serious effort to address the innovation pipeline.
  • Points:Streamline operations to make them more cost effective and efficient.
  • Towards Accelerating Innovation at UCSD

    1. 1. Towards Accelerating Innovation at UCSD Sandra A. Brown Vice Chancellor for Research Philip E. Bourne Associate Vice Chancellor forInnovation and Industrial Alliances September 26, 2012
    2. 2. One Reason We Are Here National Research Council Report 2012 Research Universities and the Future of America Included Ten Breakthrough Actions Vital to Our Nation’s Prosperity and Security: #3 Strengthen the business role in the research partnership, facilitating the transfer of knowledge, ideas, and technology to society and accelerate “time to innovation” in order to achieve our national goals. http://www8.nationalacademies.org/onpinews/newsitem.aspx?RecordID=13396
    3. 3. The State of PlayORA Activity in 2011-2012 • $1 Billion in research awards • 6000+ research grants and contracts • 300+ new patents filed • 88 patents issued • 46 inventions licensed • 13 Start Up companies (10 in San Diego)
    4. 4. The State of Play in Relative TermsYear Ending June 30, 2011 Invention Disclosures Startups Active US Patents
    5. 5. The Goal • When new UCSD faculty and the public are asked, “What are the most innovative and entrepreneurial universities in the US?” • 90% answer Stanford and MIT • In five years we want them all to answer Stanford, MIT and UCSD
    6. 6. The Approach • Self Assessment • Two major reports over the past 2-3 years – University-Industry Relations Committee – Rapid Action Task Force for TTO
    7. 7. The Response – Immediate & Done • Introduced an express license for therapeutics • Introduced an IP return option • More flexibility in industry agreements • Established a Division of Innovation and Industrial Alliances & appointed AVC Phil Bourne
    8. 8. The Response - Ongoing • Develop Electronic Research Administration Program (eRAP) to streamline: – Proposal development – Conflict of Interest – MTAs – The invention disclosure pipeline
    9. 9. Division of Innovation & IndustrialAlliances – Ongoing - Staffing • Director position offered (done transparently and in consultation with the private sector) • Currently interviewing for a Business Analyst to oversee innovation activities as they relate to the TTO • Coordinator position open for student and postdoctoral placements in industry – Prepare students for graduate, medical or professional school – Build the technology based and globally focused work force
    10. 10. Division of Innovation & IndustrialAlliances – Strategic Planning • Identified shortcomings e.g., – Innovations are lost through inventor naiveté – Innovators are not fully part of the innovation process leading to mistakes and mistrust – There is a one-size-fits-all approach irrespective of cost of development, time to market etc. – The patent budget is too small – There is insufficient expertise in deciding on innovations to take forward – Coordination or acceleration an incubation could be improved both within UCSD and with the private sector
    11. 11. Division of Innovation & IndustrialAlliances – Strategic Planning • Approach: – Convene an Innovations Advisory Board (IAB) – Composed of leading stakeholders from UCSD and the private sector – Tease apart existing innovation models that are working and cherry pick what works for our unique environment – Leapfrog existing efforts • Deliverable: – A 5 years strategic plan to be enacted starting early next year; a plan that includes evaluative metrics
    12. 12. Division of Innovation & IndustrialAlliances – IAB Members UCSD Private • AVC Phil Bourne (ORA) • Mark Cafferty (SD Regional Ec. Forum) • VC Sandra Brown (ORA) • Greg Hook (Am.
