The day after the first part of this interview appeared, Japan’s Tohoku-Pacific Coast suffered one of history’s largest and most devastating earthquakes and tsunamis.
ipe:    Alan, how did the recent earthquake and tsunami disasters shape your thoughts on patent valuation and technology transfer?
Alan:     In the aftermath of the disaster, I decided to focus attention on how patent valuation and technology transfer can contribute to this region’s recovery and future vitality.
