As the Swiss Confederation's centre of competence for patents, trade marks, designs (industrial property rights) and copyright, the IPI offers a range of courses dealing with the various aspects of intellectual property rights (IP rights) and associated information sources. We’ll introduce you to the rights you're entitled to using practical case studies. Plus you'll also learn where relevant information is available and how to access it.
These courses allow you to broaden your knowledge on protecting your products, services and innovations. In them, you'll get answers to the following questions:
- How can you profitably exploit your intellectual property?
- How can you gain a competitive advantage?
- What are your rights?
- Where can you find the necessary sources of information and how can you use them for research?
- What procedures are there?
Benefit from the practical knowledge and case-oriented experience of our trade mark, patent, design and copyright experts.
