In this seminar, participants will learn the fundamentals of a successful patenting strategy. The seminar will consider the most important evaluation criteria for identifying company technologies worth protecting and for maintaining the confidentiality of certain information. Participants will learn how to implement a profitable patent strategy in a company and which decision-makers within the company are necessary for this.
The seminar is comprised of a theoretical part and practical exercises. This is to ensure that participants can develop a patent strategy after a one-day seminar, and that they can directly implement the patent strategy in their work environment afterwards.
