A research project to improve surgical navigation combined with the entrepreneurial mindset of the lead researcher at the University of Coimbra (UC) in Portugal led to the creation of Perceive3D. Broad patent protection and a vibrant innovation ecosystem made it possible to target international markets and to secure continuous investment during the long development and approval phases, paving the way for market success.
Disrupting surgical navigation
- Universities should continue supporting their spin-offs once the licence agreement is signed and the spin-off has been created. In most cases, licence agreements should include the option to be adjusted to react quickly to rapidly changing economic environments.
- Protecting the IP of the core technologies is a critical success factor in the initial phase of technology and business development.
- IP awareness among researchers is key to ensuring that research results are properly assessed and protected prior to novelty-destroying publication.
