From idea to commercialisation

- Learn how intellectual property can boost your business
How can intellectual property (IP) support your business? What needs to be done? And how can small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) implement an IP strategy?

The European Patent Academy‘s roadshow is making a stop in Oslo to present a seminar especially directed towards SMEs.

The purpose is to show that although intellectual property (IP) may be a complicated legal field, it also provides plenty of opportunities and benefits to SMEs. Why should your company bother with IP/IP management, and how can SMEs implement an IP strategy? These questions will be answered during the presentations.

Central topics:

  • What can be protected by patents and other intellectual property rights
  • Commercialisation of proprietary technology  - getting a strategic advantage
  • Basic IP toolkit for SMEs – hacks and common pitfalls
  • Creating strategic business advantages from IP
  • SME case study of Orcan Energy, illustrating business advantages from IP
  • National and European filing strategies
  • National support options for SMEs

A case study of Orcan Energy will illustrate how a suitable IP strategy and IP management has provided an energy start-up with a solid business model and attracted funding. The programme is complemented by presentations on intellectual property rights options, in particular patents, and various measures to support innovation projects.
