The PhD seminar has an interdisciplinary focus. The program and topics at the seminar are directed across different disciplines, and will therefore focus on the relation between IPR, innovation and entrepreneurship as well as responsible conduct of research, through different guest lectures and workshops.
Marianne Weile has worked 17 years in Novozymes where she has been deeply involved in acquiring new technologies also from university inventors, setting up collaborations as well as selling technologies. She has among other been heading the IP function outside the US having around 60 people reporting to her. Marianne has a bachelor in biochemistry as well as an MBA and started her commercial carrier by establishing her own company and has therefore insight from start-up as well
as established companies interest and ground for motivation.
During her part of the program, she will touch upon elements relevant when commercializing inventions/technologies:
1) Protecting the invention through IP mainly patents. What do you need to think about when applying for IP protection? What is the difference between a patent application and a patent family? Elements relevant when defining your IP/patent strategy.
2) What are the right partners for your project? Can you find the right partners through patent searches?
3) Watch-outs in agreements relevant for commercializing your technology. Do you want to exclusive or nonexclusive outlicense your technology or sell it?
4) If we have the time introduction to negotiations. What is BATNA and ZOPA?
Marianne Weile will be around and will discuss individual questions and challenges. If the PhD students have a technology they are considering commercializing, they might want to take this opportunity to brainstorm and get feedback from Marianne.
On day 2 Clement Salung Petersen and Morten Rosenmeier will give an introduction to responsible conduct of research, the basic concepts and enforcement. Other than this, they will also touch upon the following:
- Academic freedom and freedom of speech - case-based discussions
- Conflicts of interests – case-based discussions
- Research planning and data management (including research collaborations)
- Plagiarism, double publication (“self-plagiarism”), good quotation practice, etc. – case-based discussions
- Publishing: Authorship and acknowledgements, publishing agreements, open access
