Safeguarding your most valuable assets –Intellectual Property (IP) management for Healthcare and Medical Technologies
Today’s globalised, high-tech, knowledge-based, innovation-driven economy is mainly driven by intellectual property (IP) and other intangible assets (IA) such as trade secret, data, know-how, etc. IP and IA rights are very relevant in the healthcare and medical sector as the field is heavily reliant on technology, R&D and branding - it is essential to establish, protect and enforce the legal rights that come with IP.

Many healthcare/medical technology businesses are aware that IA are key drivers to help their business be competitive. Many have reviewed the IP landscape and their IP portfolio regularly to determine the direction of their research investments, and to seek out opportunities in a new economic climate. Nevertheless, it is estimated that one third of R&D spending is wasted on inventions that already exist.

Join us to learn about:
1. Why Intangible Asset (IA) is important in building value, managing risks and achieving my business objectives?
2. How does IA plays a part in my business strategy?
3. Why is analysis of the IP landscape important for early-stage researchers?
4. Which types of IP are available and how to obtain the rights?
