ATLANTA - (Business Wire) Much like the inventions themselves, IP Advocate (http://www.IPAdvocate.org) began just over a year ago as an idea in one inventor’s mind – and has since grown to become a national movement that has amplified the collective voice of academic researchers on critical issues related to intellectual property rights. Dr. Renee Kaswan, former research professor and inventor of the groundbreaking drug Restasis®, along with a team of experts, launched the non-profit advocacy organization to address the inherent problems in university commercialization.
In its freshman year IP Advocate has been recognized for:
- Widespread exposure for the issues of technology transfer and patent reform, in national press and influential online science forums and web publications
- Collaborations with the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, the Small Business Coalition on Patent Legislation, the National Small Business Association and university technology transfer veterans nationwide
- Participation with recognized scientists, academic inventors and industry experts, who have contributed their opinions and insights exclusively for IP Advocate’s growing online community
- International awards in education, advocacy and user experience
