Intellectual Property Workshops
Which is why we feel you should be aware of two intellectual property (IP) training workshops that are being held in September.
Ownership of IP is often considered confusing, expensive and unpredictable to those outside the industry, especially considering the nature of costs associated with seeking legal IP protection.
Our friends at Coller IP are taking attendees on a journey through the IP lifecycle during two workshops, the first in Manchester on Wednesday, September 18, and the second at the Shard, London, on Friday, September 20.
The workshops will help you to effectively and efficiently maximise the value of your intangible assets. They will be highly commercial and interactive, and also offer an option of personalised 1-2-1 follow-up consultations with Coller IP’s team of experts.
From software to trade secrets to know-how and relationships, the world of IP is so much bigger than just patents and trademarks, and during the course of each day, Coller IP’s unique training workshop will help give you more confidence and equip your business to recognise the value from its hidden assets.
What to expect from the day
This is a taste of what you can expect on the day:
- Create – Finding solutions, adapting previous innovations, third parties, open source, uniqueness and the inventive step
- Capture – Communications, recording/documenting, policies, searching, decision making, acquiring, sale and transfer agreements
