Description

Morning and afternoon courses


2. IP & COMMERCIALISATION

The morning session will provide you with a basic understanding of how to develop, commercialise and manage IP. We will review how to approach collaborations (as partners, suppliers, customers) from the IP perspective, with topics covering contracts and confidentiality agreements, building an IP strategy, preparing an IP policy, and IP matters relating to employees. The training will consider IP management, and provide a framework for establishing a robust practice in house.

This course should appeal to those embarking on the commercialisation of IP through licencing, sale, or joint venture activities, and also those who may want to review their own procedures. The course is primarily focused on techniques applicable for managing and commercialising technologies which are patentable and considering approaches for different companies and situations.

Attendees will be limited in number so there will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and consider specific topics in more detail. Lunch is included in the price and we encourage attendees to stay, giving further opportunity to discuss IP and commercialisation issues with the experts and to learn from other’s experiences. UK IPO will be present to assist with specific IP filing issues.
