How to protect your invention – patents and other means to safeguard inventions?
December 12, 2019
Suppose you came up with a unique invention or innovation. Of course, you don’t want someone else to run off with it. How do you actually protect your invention? Do you need to patent before publishing; how does that work in an academic environment? What are the benefits of patenting for researchers and their faculty? Which support and funding is available for patenting your innovation? These and related topics will be covered in this highly interactive workshop.
During this workshop you will learn what a patent is, how to use it and how you can benefit from a patent. You will get information on who can file for a patent, what you can do with a patent, what is and what is not patentable. We provide you with an overview of the patenting process and how IXA can support you along the way.
Researchers, PhD’s and staff supporting them in knowledge dissemination and collaborations.
Participation is free of charge. So is the breakfast served, but registration is compulsory.
The breakfast workshops cover various topics concerning sharing knowledge and thus creating impact in society. The workshops helps you to explore the possibilities of valorization, knowledge transfer and entrepreneurship.
To get you started right away the workshops are highly interactive, information dense and practical: you can put it to use immediately.
The workshops are developed by IXA, the joint knowledge transfer office of HvA, UvA, VU and Amsterdam UMC. They are open to researchers from these universities and for colleagues from the KNAW and NWO Institutes.
Each institution has its own dedicated IXA team that offers researchers and PhD’s support in a broad sense: from starting new collaborations with outside parties, applying for research funding and target financing options to supporting the start of your own company.
