European IPR Helpdesk
Dr. Britta Seidel-Speer(Licence Manager-Fraunhofer Society)


Level of Expertise: Basic

Language: English

Prerequisites: General knowledge on Intellectual Property Rights


This webinar is part of our special webinar series "IP Challenges in Life Science".


The Training Concept:

The training concept is particularly targeted to the needs of entrepreneurs, start-up companies or small-medium sized companies looking for information/strategies to build up or develop a life science business around their intellectual assets.

We are happy that we could attract very renowned IP practitioners with many years of experiences in IP management and technology transfer in Life Sciences as expert speakers. Our experts will not only provide you a hands-on insight into the subject, but also answer to your individual questions within our interactive webinar sessions.

The webinars are structured to address the relevant steps to build, protect and manage IP portfolios to develop a profitable life science enterprise from the commercial and investment perspective – including the basics of contractual management and licensing. Licenses are an effective manner in which to monetize a life science company’s intellectual property while retaining ownership and creating a revenue stream for the company.

The European IPR Helpdesk offers a series of three webinars which can be booked individually. We offer up to 100 seats per webinar on a first come – first serve basis.
