From Protection to Control: How to use IP at a Commercial Level
december 14 - december 15
Join us in Brussels (December 14) or in Liège (December 15) for this seminar from the head of AWA Strategy – Henrik Olsson looking at how best to use IP at a commercial level.
Details on precise location will be given later to registered participants.
The business domain is changing. Globalization, digitalization and pressure on higher returns from investments. These drivers challenge the classic perspectives on competition as well as innovation. We have seen a clear need to assess and manage knowledge. What knowledge is relevant to the business, how should it be packaged into revenue streams and how to build sufficient control around the knowledge to lead to higher competitiveness.
It is clear that IP does not create value on its own, the value comes from relevant IPR being deployed during a relevant company activity. One trend we are seeing is the shift from IP as a means to protect towards a means to control or enable interaction with actors in the business ecosystem.
Topics to be discussed include:
- Changes in the business domain with impact on IP management
- Knowledge – How to control the soft capital
- Hands-on considerations when making decisions related to IP management, such as investments and M&As
Henrik’s presentation will be followed by a cocktail reception with networking opportunities.
