Dirty little tricksEdit
This session is structured as a role play where you take on the persona of either the TTO (licensor) or a company (potential licensee). We describe the technology & IP and - then ask you to agree at an equitable position. Teams are mentored by those experienced in negotiating licenses. The aim of the role play is to help you to identify and resolve the most problematic points in a negotiation.

Negotiating the dealEdit
Even when you have a groundbreaking technology to offer, it still is not always easy to come to a balanced deal. This session discusses several factors that can lead to success or failure when negotiating and (hopefully) closing a technology deal, and navigates you through negotiation tactics and strategies.

Negotiation & closureEdit
TTOs often find it difficult to visualise the negotiation process and to move from the ‘selling’ phase to commitment, negotiation and close. In this session we follow two difficult (but ultimately successful) negotiations, identifying critical issues and understanding the TTO’s role in closing the deal.
