Improve your practical knowledge at the IP Academy 2019 – Basic

Winthontlaan 6, 3526 KV Utrecht, Utrecht, Netherlands

Follow the annual course on patents, trademarks and designs. For innovative entrepreneurs who wish to improve their intellectual property (IP) know-how, V.O. Patents & Trademarks organizes a basic course on IP on Thursday 26 September. This course will be given, in English, by our attorneys and feature many practical examples and skill trainings. In terms of content, this course can be compared to the previous editions of our IP Academy course.

Basic course – 26 September

The basic course addresses practical aspects of IP and is intended for those who are still relatively unfamiliar with IP. The course teaches the basic terminology, how to read a patent and what possibilities are offered by IP. The day will be rounded off with a game in which the newly acquired IP skills can be practiced.

V.O.  also offers an advanced course, to be held on 14 November. The advanced course is intended for IP managers and IP responsibles having some practical experience. For more information about the advanced course, one is referred to the web page IP Academy – Advanced.
