The OUP Exchange: Licensing Trends for Climate Tech Startups

March 5 @ 12:00 pm

The purpose of the Virtual Exchange is to share best practices across a broad network and make connections in the tech transfer world. In this Exchange, we’ll share best practices for licensing to climate tech startups, including the following questions:

  • Given the ever-evolving climate tech landscape these past few years, how have your licensing practices to these startups changed, if at all? What are your pain points working with these startups? What are some best practices your office has implemented?
  • Have royalty percentage amounts or structures changed recently in your climate tech startup licenses? What are some best practices you can share regarding structuring compensation for Licensed Product sales in climate tech licenses?
  • Are you utilizing milestone payments as a different lever in your climate tech startup licenses? If so, have these been to offset some or all earned royalty payments?
  • Have these startups requested any interesting non-financial terms?

Bring your pain points and lessons learned pertaining to climate tech startup licensing. We’ll start out with a brief panel discussion addressing some of these questions, followed by breakout rooms to talk through additional points, and then a brief summary of the breakout discussions back in the main room.

Each breakout room will have a moderator and scribe. The moderators will keep the discussions moving in the breakout rooms, and the scribes will be responsible for summarizing the key findings of their breakout session and presenting them to the larger group. If you would like to volunteer for one of these positions, please designate that on your registration form or email Jaimie Testai at You are also welcome to send in advance to Jaimie any additional questions you would like to see discussed during the Exchange.

Come discuss, network, and learn together on March 5th or 6th. We will run two sessions since we know not everyone can always make a specific date and time.

While most of our programs are open to a broad swath of audiences, the purpose of the Exchange is to share best practices in the academic tech transfer field and therefore is only open to individuals employed by our partner institutions’ Technology Commercialization Offices.
