The Event is fully booked. A registration is no longer possible.

Intellectual property (IP) makes today a substantial asset in companies (including SMEs and start-ups) and it is a central aspect of competitiveness. Therefore, the use but also the protection of intellectual property is of crucial importance. But what are the IP tools and how you might get deep insights about your field of activities, your invention and potential competitors? E.g. how can you identify who is active in the field and who might be a partner to cooperate? The i-net Business Seminar about «Intellectual Property Intelligence» will help you to answer these questions.

The introduction into the world of IP and its tools will be given by André Braun, who is a chemist and patent attorney. Then, Dr. Jochen Spuck, chemist and patent expert, will talk about the landscaping IP search, a new product of Institut für Geistiges Eigentum (IGE) providing knowledge related to other IP based on patent related databases and classes. Moreover Dr. Andreas Gaussmann will share his insights about IP strategy and management in industry. Finally, the presenters and other experts in the field are available for a panel discussion moderated by Beatus Hofrichter, ConCep+ GmbH.

The seminar on February 24th, 2016, is hosted at Technologiepark Basel (Hochbergerstrasse 60C, Basel) starting from 14:00.
