  2. Facts about University of Latvia Faculties – 13 Institutes – 21 Study programmes – 140 • Undergraduate 56 (40%) • Graduate – 60 (43%) • Doctoral – 24 (17%) Students – 19 095 • Undergraduate 14 339 (75%) • Graduate – 3 903 (20%) • Doctoral – 853 (5%) Staff – 2954 • Academic staff – 797 (45%) • Administration – 207 (6%) • Other staff – 1 950 (49%) Budget – 71 173 775 EUR (int.al. 17 772 015 EUR balanceat beginning of year)

  3. University of Latvia applied and approved patents 2006.-2010.

  4. Patent cost calculation I. DIRECT COSTS 1.Wages, social insurance allocations 2. Travel and accommodation costs 3. Materials and supplies 4. Services (including patent application costs) II. DIRECTLY ALLOCATED COSTS 1. Equipment costs (depreciation) 2. Facilities / building depreciation costs and premises-related running costs (electricity, rent, supply, water supply and sewerage, heating, waste disposal, taxes, service staff remuneration): III. INDIRECT COSTS 1. Faculties and institutes administration and support costs (wages, social insurance allocations, supplies, services, equipment, facilities, etc.) 2. University central administration and support costs (wages, social insurance allocations, supplies, services, equipment, facilities, etc.) IV. PROFIT

  8. UL Innovation Centre / general information • Innovation centre of Technology transfer office • Since 2006th • As part of MoE financed project to make TTO network in Latvia • Structural unit in Planning and Development department • 4 employees competent in: innovation management; biology, chemistry, physics; microbiology, pharmacy; IPR management • The average age of employees34 years 

  9. UL Innovation Centre / functions • Management of internal environment (IPR management, innovation support services to researchers, internal communication, education to researchers etc.) • Marketing (to companies) • Supporting the development of innovative ideas • Initiating commercialization processes

  10. UL Innovation Centre / the main results • Date base of Competences - information about 82 groups of researchers • Marketing tool for selling contract research projects) • we have visited every group of researchers • 124 potentially commercialable ideas, technologies • 25 seminars and contact/brokerage events • 3 spin offs have been established • 23 commercialization proposals

  11. UL Innovation Centre / IPR • Registered IPR • 1 international patent • 3 European patent applications • 11 Latvian patent applications • IPR management regulations: elaborated and introduced • IPR belong to University of Latvia • researchers have to inform IC about the potential IPR • IC evaluates the commercial potential before granting support to protect IPR • Revenue sharing model - 50:50

  12. UL Innovation Centre revenue / expenses structure Revenue ERDF ESF UL budget Co-financing IC administration Intellectual poperty protection Conferences and travel Expenses

  13. UL Innovation Centre revenue / expenses structure 2006.-2010. EUR

  14. Challanges Weak cooperation between industry and researchers; Commercial vs ‘academic’ value of patent; Project results (IP) belongs to financer; ERDF for non-commercial research projects; In time IPR expenses increase and value decrease;
