Event Details

An event run by the Digital and Communications Knowledge Transfer Network and InfoLab21. The topic will be on Intellectual Property (IP).

In a turbulent economic climate, it's more important than ever to ensure that all your business assets are delivering the best value.

The event is focused on 'unlocking' your intellectual property and other intangibles and using them to create value through collaboration, licensing and fundraising. The programme is led by participants from key organisations in the community of innovation and will use a combination of thought-provoking research, case studies and practical exercises to help you understand the potential, and the possible pitfalls, of an 'open' approach for your IP.

Who should attend:

  • CEO's/proprietors of knowledge-intensive companies
  • Technical, legal and finance directors, and other senior managers working with IP
  • Technology transfer officers
  • Professionals involved in brokering collaboration and partnerships
