Not many people are aware that their inventions, trade marks, logos, designs and business names be protected under Intellectual Property (IP) law. IP is, therefore, an extremely valuable asset that can not only prevent your competitors from copying your products but can provide a unique marketing and selling advantage.
In order to make companies more acutely aware of IP, a one-day training course on Intellectual Property and Licensing will be held in Dublin on April 26th. Organised by DeepWater Training, the course will be of interest to companies, researchers, legal and finance professionals, as well as to those that support the commercialisation of research in HEIs and state agencies.
Delivered by Dr. John McManus – an IP expert with a career profile in research and product development, company start-ups, technology transfer and IP management techniques – the course will cover topics that focus on the constituent elements and importance of IP, the patent system, managing, evaluating and exploiting IP, and understanding licence terms.
The course will take place in Dublin’s Clarence Hotel, 9.15am-5pm. The fee is €450 (VAT exempt) with a special early bird registration fee of €395 for bookings received prior to March 30th. Places on this course can be booked via email here [firstname.lastname@example.org]
