As part of its spring seminar series, STC.UNM, UNM’s technology-transfer and economic-development office, hosts two seminars on Tuesday, March 17. Featured speakers include Steven Lundberg and Nicholas Lanzatella, attorneys with Schwegman, Lundbert & Woessner, PA. 

Lundberg discusses “Beyond Enforcement:  Other Advantages for Patenting Your Inventions,” from 8-9 am in the Auditorium, Building 800, at the UNM Science & Technology Park located on South Campus at 800 University Blvd., SE. 

Lundberg is a registered patent attorney and a founding partner of Schwegman, Lundberg & Woessner. His presentation will focus on the various ways a patent application/issued patent can bring advantages other than the obvious use case of enforcing the patent.

Lanzatella presents a lecture, titled “An Introduction to Patents for Professors and Graduate Students,” from 12-1 p.m. in Clark Hall, Room 214A, on main campus.

Lanzatella will explain what a patent is and what it can do, why a professor or graduate student would want a patent, how to write an invention disclosure, and how to efficiently fit the activities needed to get a patent into the workflow of academic research. 

The seminars are free and open to the UNM community and the public, though registration is required. Visit online registration or contact Amy Patterson to register via email or phone, (505) 272-8774.

Free parking at UNM Science & Technology Park is available in the parking garage directly west of Building 800, at the corner of Basehart and Bradbury Drive.
