Commercialization of agricultural (e.g., biofertilizers, plants developed using CRISPR) and life sciences (e.g., cell lines, mouse models) technologies, among others, often requires obtaining proper permissions or agreements from third parties who own or possess title to materials, technologies, or precursors. The panel will focus on discussing the issues and challenges facing universities and research institutions engaging commercial partners for technologies that require such third-party rights and/or permissions. Topics to be discussed include diligence and timing of such diligence, types of agreements put in place and terms, as well as risks for universities if ignoring these issues.
