Best Practice IP Management for Resource Companies
Research indicates that many Australian resource companies are lagging behind their international counterparts when it comes to formally protecting their intellectual property (IP). IP assets represent a significant proportion of the capital value of a company. Poor IP practices can result in exposure to considerable risk and impact on profits, as commercial opportunities are not realised.
Join us in a half day workshop to better understand the value of your IP assets and how these can be better managed to underpin and support a commercial strategy. Discussions and activities include –
Understanding the IP landscape and how it can direct R&D and business activities;
Practices to identify, capture, and evaluate new IP;
Different types of IP and how these can be leveraged within your business;
Managing relationships with employees and external parties to avoid negative IP implications;
Extracting greater value from protected assets; and
Case Study – real life experiences and learning’s from a guest IP manager in the resource sector
