Who profits from Technology Transfer ?



Oxford Model - Key Ingredients

  • Rich portfolio of wholly-owned IPR

  • University claims ownership of all employees’ and students’ IP rights resulting from University research activities

  • The university assists those researchers who wish to commercialise their research

    • by patenting, licences, spinout companies & consultancy
  • Researchers share the benefits



Licensing

  • Licensing is when you give someone permission to use your invention in return for:

  • money up front or

  • money when they achieve a defined event or

  • a share of their sales or

  • a share of their profits or

  • A combination of some or all of the above



Royalty Rates

  • Tables are available but

  • With new technology the rate is rarely defined

  • One rule of thumb:“We want a third of your incremental gross profit”

    • So if they make 30% gross on sales we want 10% of sales
    • They do the work so they get 70%
    • Without our idea they don’t get anything


Licensing

  • Pro

  • They work you get paid

  • Can make big money

  • Stimulates research ideas



Spinouts

  • Pro

  • Most fun

  • You can make most money

  • You still retain some control
