EPO case study about Oxeon by Bowman Heiden and Caroline Pamp

The technology transfer case studies illustrate how patents facilitate technology transfer from R&D-conducting organisations and promote market success. The examples cover a range of economic sectors, countries and types of technology transfer. Each case study provides key takeaways for stakeholders in universities, other public research organisations and businesses. Overall, they demonstrate the importance of patents for technology transfer to start-ups, spin-offs and established companies.

A new weaving method using composite material was the basis for the foundation of Swedish start-up Oxeon. IP rights for the technology helped to attract private investment. Oxeon also benefitted from business support from the Chalmers University of Technology entrepreneurship centre. This combination of private ownership and public innovation support led to the commercialisation of innovative textiles in the sports, industrial and aerospace sectors and the licensing of the weaving technology.

Increasing Diversity in Innovation – Capturing America’s Lost Inventors — Virtual Conference July 26-29


Findings by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and leading researchers show that women, people of color, and veterans are significantly underrepresented as US patent inventors. All of the data indicates that the US has missed out on millions of inventors, impacting national innovation and economic growth.

On July 26-29, the US Intellectual Property Alliance and UC Berkeley will host a virtual conference bringing together the USPTO, corporate legal teams, innovators, industry associations, and key stakeholders across the country to focus on increasing engagement of underrepresented inventors.
