Module 2: Intellectual Property (IP) and legal factors 

The main focus of this module is intellectual property in Life Sciences and in particular its role in business development and company strategy. The aim is not to make you an IP lawyer, which would be unrealistic in two days, but to give you enough of a basis to be able to know what is important and what not, ask critical questions and to involve help at the right times and for the right steps. The first day focusses on protection of intellectual property with sessions on different methods to protect your IP (patents, trade secrets, trademarks etc), how ownership and inventorship works in the EU, freedom to operate based on a patent portfolio and patent prosecution. The second day contains sessions on tech transfer from universities, sponsored research collaborations (from an IP point of view) and the most frequent contracts in Life Sciences (NDA, licence, research service, research collaboration). At the end of the day the participants will do an interactive IP business case to apply the knowledge and insights gained during this module.
