APEX, N.C. – Fuentek senior consultant and process director, Dr. Nannette Stangle-Castor, will be a panelist for the Managing Intellectual Property Issues in Alliance Relationships discussion presented by the Research Triangle Park Chapters of the Licensing Executive Society (LES) and the Association of Strategic Alliance Professionals (ASAP). The discussion will take place on Tuesday, June 8, from 11:45 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Maggiano’s Restaurant located at the Streets of Southpoint Mall in Durham.

Panelists will discuss intellectual property (IP) practices and address key questions such as:

  • How does collaboration differ in the high-tech versus pharma/biotech industries and what impact do these differences have on IP management?
  • What are the unique considerations involved in collaborations with universities?
  • What role do NDAs (non-disclosure agreements) play, and how do you create effective boundaries?
  • How do you strike a balance between the openness required for successful collaboration, and the control required for IP protection? What are the best practices regarding use of “firewalls”?

“I am looking forward to speaking at the LES and ASAP event on intellectual property management,” said Stangle-Castor. “Knowing how to handle IP can be a challenge, particularly when dealing with alliance relationships, and this discussion will be helpful in teaching participants the best ways to capitalize on alliances while still positioning themselves strategically with regard to their IP.”

About the Event:

Other confirmed panelists for the event include: Moderator Marc C. Sedam, MBA, chief operating officer, Qualyst, Inc.; Henry Nowak, assistant director of the Office of Technology Development, UNC-Chapel Hill; and Chris Capel, partner, Smith Anderson Law Firm.

LES is a professional society including nearly 5,000 members involved in the transfer, use, development, manufacture and marketing of intellectual property.

ASAP is the only professional membership organization that is dedicated to alliance formation. It provides an opportunity for individuals or companies to exchange alliance practices, resources and opportunities that drive corporate performance.
