IP & Commercialisation (am)

We aim to provide you with a basic understanding of how to develop, commercialise and manage IP.   We will review how to go about working with others from the IP perspective, to include, 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.

Freedom to Operate Search & Analysis (pm)

Companies, large and small, all need to take care to ensure that, as far as possible, their potential product, or process, will not infringe any existing products or patents. In this training we will review how to prepare for FTO searching, how to stage FTO according to the product development stage and what you can do when your budget is limited. How to perform a limited ‘FTO’ on a small budget to minimize risks, and how to perform a full ‘clearance’.  The training will also cover how to analyse the results, and how to report your findings.

Who should attend?

Anyone who wants to learn more about managing innovation practices and the commercialisation of technologies in relation to IP.

Cost:      £150 (EarlyBird) - £225 +VAT per half-day which includes lunch and refreshments.

Discount if both sessions booked.
