Description

Enterprise Europe Network is organising an interactive workshop to help manufacturing companies understand how to best manage their intellectual property.

This workshop, delivered in partnership with Adamson Jones, will provide delegates with an overview of the types of IP protection to consider as well as knowledge of the IP protection framework. You will learn about IP identification, creation and ownership of intellectual property rights, how IP functions in the supply chain and how IP rights are commonly enforced. You will also have the option of holding one-to-one meetings with the experts in the afternoon.

Key elements of the workshop will include:

  • Perform your own IP audit

  • Decide what IP protection to put in place

  • Understand practical factors affecting the value of your IP

  • Plan for commercial exploitation of IP rights

  • Learn about Enterprise Europe Network's Innovate 2 Succeed programme
