Strategic intellectual property management course

This interactive and engaging course design embeds different teaching methods enabling participants to develop the capabilities necessary to think strategically about IP. For example, during the course, participants will learn to implement a structured, step-by-step roadmapping-based process for formulating IP strategies. This tool, which has been tested and applied extensively by the IfM’s Innovation and Intellectual Property Management (IIPM) research lab, facilitates robust and systematic conversations about IP which otherwise would be difficult to cover. After the course, participants will be equipped to use the templates and process within their organisations to develop IP strategies.

Overall, the course will cover four main topics:

  • An introduction to IP basics (refresher)
  • IP in open (collaborative) innovation, contracts and licensing
  • Strategic IP thinking
  • An approach for developing an IP strategy
