The ideal way to explore strategic options for your intellectual property
Here are some of the ways in which Merrill DataSite can aid in successful IP management:
Licensing. For various financial, R & D, manufacturing or distribution objectives, many life sciences companies pursue licensing arrangements. Merrill DataSite is the ideal platform to help you execute in- and out-licensing arrangements with academic medical centers, universities and other research institutions, as well as other life sciences companies.
Purchase or sale. Merrill DataSite’s proven solution allows bidders and deal teams to quickly and efficiently comb through documents and assess the critical information they need in order to collaborate during due diligence.
Technology transfer. Merrill DataSite lets you easily and securely transfer proprietary data. Whether you’re sharing information with universities, government entities or contract manufacturers, you determine the information each entity can see, download or print. This simplifies collaboration and streamlines the crucial exchange of business critical information
