Event Description: 

The European IPR Helpdesk, in close co-operation with the Fit for Health 2.0 project and the Enterprise Europe Network, invites you to participate in the special webinar series "IP Challenges in Life Science".

There are few business sectors where the impact of IP management is as dramatic as it is in life science. The life sciences field is one of the most challenging areas of patent law, with frequent changes to issues of patentability and best practice. No other field requires such rigorous regulation from invention to market. This long route to market means that intellectual property is often one of a company’s most valuable assets even before commercial trading begins.

Patents are often the most valuable assets of start-up companies, particularly in the life science sector. Consequently, companies must ensure that proper procedures are in place to maximize the value of their intellectual assets. Accordingly, life science companies should be proactive in identifying, protecting and exploiting their patentable inventions and in avoiding the infringement of other’s patent rights.

Training Concept

Training Concept

The training concept is particularly targeted to the needs of entrepreneurs, start-up companies or small-medium sized companies looking for information/strategies to build up or develop a life science business around their intellectual assets.

We are happy that we could attract very renowned IP practitioners with many years of experiences in IP management and technology transfer in Life Sciences as expert speakers. Our experts will not only provide you a hands-on insight into the subject, but also answer to your individual questions within our interactive webinar sessions.

The webinars are structured to address the relevant steps to build, protect and manage IP portfolios to develop a profitable life science enterprise from the commercial and investment perspective – including the basics of contractual management and licensing. Licenses are an effective manner in which to monetize a life science company’s intellectual property while retaining ownership and creating a revenue stream for the company.

The European IPR Helpdesk offers a series of three webinars which can be booked individually. We offer up to 100 seats per webinar on a first come – first serve basis.
