When does investing in IP protection actually make sense? How can you protect your IP with a limited budget by cleverly using the possibilities? And what role can IP play in order to make your entreprise more attractive for a take-over? How do you create value?
On Friday 27 February 2015, Octrooicentrum Nederland (OCNL) and High Tech Campus Eindhoven organise the event Patents valuable to SME? IP strategy with a limited budget. The purpose of the event is to guide you, as a business person representing a technically innovative SME, through the support possibilities for patent activities. A useful IP strategy with a limited budget, that’s what it’s all about.
Under the supervision of the day’s chairman Ton Tangena (President European Patent Institute) co-businessmen and specialists, including V.O. Patents & Trademarks, share their experiences with you. They explain how they use patents to cooperate with large companies and how they do so with a limited budget. Also, they explain how patents create value for their companies.
