The organizational and management aspects that characterize the company patent office – Fifteenth Part


Tue 18 Jun 2019

Event description

The meeting is the continuation of previous round tables and discussions on the same subject, the last of which took place in November 2018, and was organized, at the request of the participants, in order to allow them and those dealing with patents and intellectual property within associated companies to investigate and discuss the organizational and management aspects that characterize the corporate patent office.

The rapid evolution of the market and technologies, as well as the increasingly broader and global competitive scenario, requires companies to structure themselves adequately to protect their intellectual capital. Each, according to their needs, has equipped the company with a structure (more or less developed and articulated) dedicated to the management of the patent portfolio and all the activities connected to it, carrying out activities with internal resources, or relying on external consultants.

The proposed work table will be oriented towards the deepening and discussion of the issues that the companies of the working group have already identified and which concern:

  • Patent portfolio management tools
  • Prior art searches on designs
  • Deposit strategies
  • Cost calculation
  • Licenses and damage quantification: comparison of cases in which accounting CTUs were reached for the quantification of the QUANTUM, percentages of license costs (paid or collected), patent licensing negotiations
  • Patent and trademark portfolio evaluation
  • “AICIPI path for in-house IP Managers” – initiative of AICIPI (Italian Association of Consultants and Experts in Industrial Property of Bodies and Companies) for peer-to-peer support for accelerated training to transfer knowledge and above all experiences to those who undertake the business in the corporate IP world
  • IP management in contracts with universities and research bodies
  • Intercompany IP management
