Join the Washington Clean Energy Testbeds for a social and informational event on technology licensing.  Many innovative energy and climate technologies are developed at universities and government labs. The pathway for taking these innovations out of the lab and to market includes a licensing process ensuring that the inventing institution can benefit from successful products.  Licensing is an essential part of the legal process of launching a company, but it can be a complicated negotiation. Both innovators and entrepreneurs benefit most when they understand how to navigate the process. Please join us on February 27th to hear from legal experts and seasoned entrepreneurs on what to expect when licensing technology and how to avoid being bogged down in a legal process while focusing on driving the technology forward.
