F.I.R.E. Series – October 13, 2011

The Offices of Technology Transfer, in cooperation with the Center for Entrepreneurship proudly presents F.I.R.E. in October:

“What Is an ‘Invention?'”

The Technology Transfer process hinges upon one thing: having technologies to transfer. Technologies come to us from inventors by way of the Invention Disclosure Form. But at what point does a researcher become an inventor and research yield an invention? And just what is an invention? That is a fair question — and one we will attempt to answer at this lively and informative session.

Our presenter is Kathryn Doyle, Ph.D., J.D., Partner and Chair of Riverside Law in West Conshohocken, PA. Dr. Doyle began her career as a research scientist. She switched to patent law and has become a recognized expert in patent law surrounding medicine, pharmaceuticals, devices, tools, genomics, and agriculture.

Where: the Class of ’62 Auditorium (G-9425 & 1-9425)

When: Thursday, October 13, 2011, 9am – 10am
