key goals
Key goals
  • Support commercialization by collecting, listing and presenting public research patents
  • Create online ”marketplace”, a “showroom” for researchers/institutions and their inventions
  • Missing link between industry and techtrans-office/researchers
  • Each patent description should include both management summary and business opportunities – i.e. focus on the industry: companies, partners, investors
  • Always updated information, easy searchable
key considerations
Key considerations
  • Prioritize customer need
  • Balance design of the patent description with both industry and institutions in mind
  • Make plans for integrating information along the line - needs flexible design
  • Plan for ongoing contact with institutions on updates
