Following feedback from the participants at the first SIPF, the second SIPF event on Tuesday 8th December 2015 will focus on IP valuation, which we intend broadly to cover not only approaches to valuing internal IP portfolios, but also the valuation or appraisal of external IP assets (e.g., when undergoing technology acquisitions). The half-day SIPF event will cover different perspectives on this topic from different industry sectors.
Intellectual property (IP) may adopt many forms - patents, trademarks, goodwill, designs, copyright and know-how. But what all of these forms have in common is that they provide key IP assets potentially with substantial commercial and innovation potential. Knowing how to leverage these IP assets requires a balanced blend of IP awareness, commercial understanding and familiarity with IP portfolio management. Committed to supporting the UK industry, IfM’s Centre for Technology Management (CTM) and Avidity IP launched the Strategic Intellectual Property Forum (SIPF) earlier this year to help companies understand and exploit their IP.
