For engineers their intellectual assets are usually their most valuable assets, yet they are also the most poorly managed. Less than 1% will ever be commercialised.
This webinar will suggest ways engineers can greatly improve these odds and provide guidance on best practices in managing this potentially enormously valuable asset class.
Who should attend
This webinar is intended as an introduction for engineers and scientists who want to understand how to take advantage of their ingenuity not just for their benefit but also for the benefit of society as a whole. All disciplines are encouraged to attend as the principles discussed will apply to innovation in all sectors of engineering and science.
- Discuss the importance of intellectual property in all disciplines of science and engineering
- How to capture and protect innovation as it occurs
- Sourcing expertise and technology
- Secure collaboration
- Guidance on simple, inexpensive IP best practices
- Commercialising your intellectual assets
