Webinar: Establishing an Effective Royalty Audit Process for University IP Licenses

Add to calendar

Tuesday, April 11, 2017
1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Establishing an effective royalty audit process begins with assessing contract language to ensure terms are defined properly, employing a solid monitoring system, and creating clear polices to back it all up.

It’s a fact that royalties can and do get lost in translation, misinterpretation, error, confusion, and lack of oversight. Getting your royalty audit process right can help you avoid potential disputes while maintaining friendly, cooperative relationships with licensees. It can also preserve tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars that might otherwise slip away from your TTO.

That’s why Technology Transfer Tactics’ Distance Learning Division recruited two highly experienced royalty audit professionals to lead this critical session: Establishing an Effective Royalty Audit Process for University IP Licenses
