Science as a profession is about creating and sharing new knowledge with the world…all while navigating issues of intellectual property, technology transfers, and licensing. CollectiveIP.com, a fairly new website by Collective IP, Inc. (I bet you never would have guessed that one), allows users to search for technologies from around the globe from one site. Bringing together information about technology patents and patent applications, awarded research grants, and technology transfer (an experimental feature), CollectiveIP.com allows users to search this information by keyword, person, or company. Alternatively, site visitors can search by institution to browse that institution’s patents and research grants. The site is nicely organized and uncluttered. Additionally, the people behind the site are also very friendly, urging site visitors, “We read and reply to every message, so please feel free to reach out any time.”
