A standardised and manageable patent review procedure has also been developed by KTO for all granted patents at HKBU. This procedure requires patents to be reviewed every three years to determine whether the patents are still of commercial value to be maintained by HKBU. This will allow the University to keep high-value patents while lowering the cost of patent maintenance by abandoning the ones that are no longer of commercial interest to HKBU.
