Patenting & Licensing of IP
• Evaluation of ETH inventions
• Advice on patentability
• Patent applications, administration and setting up of IP strategy
• Production of marketing material
• Licensing opportunities and “Tech Alerts”
• Identification of industry partners/licensees
• Licensing agreements
• Controlling and distribution of revenues
Motivation
• How do they convince researchers to patent?
• Builds reputation/nice on CV
• Products on the shelf with their technology inside
• Creating employment and income
• Personal financial incentive: 1/3 of the net revenues goes to inventor
• Potential participation in the “Spark Award”
• It is fun to do…
How do they get notice of inventions?
• Mostly: Direct disclosure to ETH Transfer
• Preconditions:
• Scientists/Inventors have to be aware of a possible commercialization
potential of the research results
• Scientists/Inventors have to know about whom to contact and when
• Scientists/Inventors have to be aware of the importance of confidentiality
• PEOPLE HAVE TO KNOW WHAT TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER IS
Who do they target?
• Mostly
• Researchers
• Professors
• Postdocs
• PhD students
• Potential founders of spinoff companies
• Students are not in the primary focus of ETH transfer
ETH transfer activities – IP awareness
• Seminar talks in research groups
• Specifically “accessible” after a bad experience
• Talks within the framework of education for founders to be – mainly from
outside experts
• Sporadic seminars within the framework of PhD schools
• Spark Award
• No active scouting for technologies for potential patents, e.g. no constant
contact with researchers

New Emphasis on IP Education
• Goals
• Awareness
• Modesty
• Reach
• Constrains
• Size (20K students + 500 professors)
• Diversity (Bsc to Professors)
• Curricula (timing, “focus on math not IP)
• What doesn't work
• Don’t try to reach all – don’t impose – don’t evangelize
New Emphasis on IP Education
• What does work
• Basic IP classes
• National, EU and International IP Law
• Focus on patents, copyrights
• Use external lecturers
• Specialized & Integrated classes
• Workshop and Lecture Series on the Law & Economics of Innovation
• IP basics for PhD students in Physics
• Entrepreneurship classes
• Variety
• Normal classes Vs short modules
• Non traditional educational activities (incubators, individual counseling, project/active
learning etc)
Thank you
