IP Portfolio Added Value Tools

While Intellectual Property is a term increasingly used nowadays and it is essential to reap the benefits of innovation, it seems that organizations usually use informal processes when developing a portfolio of technology, even if it is built with a few patents or technologies. Therefore it is necessary to know the tools or methodologies that can be used to organize and commercialize IP. The webinar will focus on 4 main factors that are important to consider in order to create value for a business:

  • Internationalization of the portfolio, selecting the inventions with more potential to be transferred and the ones that have to be abandoned in order to reduce cost of maintenance fees;
  • Diversification, detecting the patents, projects of R&D or knowledge (processes or methods) that can be exploited in other sectors of application;
  • Detection of new opportunities, continuously evaluating the market in order to detect new technologies to add to the commercialization portfolio;
  • IP Strategy, establishing the roadmap of each technology and the different steps to the commercialization stage.
