Publish vs. Patent and Its Effect on Your Career
February 21, 2013
12:00pm-1:00pm Pacific Standard Time (3:00pm-4:00pm Eastern Standard Time)
The question of whether to patent or publish is an important choice for researchers at all levels. Depending upon industry or academia, the emphasis on patents and publications can differ. Therefore, it is particularly important for graduate students to consider which path is best. Can the decision to patent or publish impact one’s career and what are the benefits of one vs. the other?
The panelists will be taking your LIVE audience questions:
Our distinguished panelists:
Dr. Charles Williams, Assistant Vice President for Innovation, University of Oregon
Chuck holds a Ph.D. in Botany from the Univ. of Washington and a J.D from the University of Washington School of Law. He is a Washington State attorney with experience in sports entertainment and environmental law in addition to IP law.
Mr. Paul Harmon, Manager of Nanophotonics and Devices, Voxtel Inc.
Mr. Harmon received his MSME from Stanford University in 1989 and a BSME in 1981 from the University of Washington. Mr. Harmon holds 43 issued Patents worldwide.
