Event details:

This online training course will provide you with a basic understanding of how to develop, commercialise and manage IP. It will be delivered online as two one & a half hour Zoom sessions over two consecutive days (3 hours in total).

We will review how to go about working with others from the IP perspective, looking at 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 licensing, sale, or joint venture activities, and also those who may want to review their own procedures.
