The organizational and management aspects that characterize the corporate patent office – Thirteenth Part


Thu 15 Mar 2018

Event description

The meeting is the continuation of previous round tables and discussions on the same subject, the last of which took place in June 2017, and was organized, at the request of the participants, in order to allow them and those dealing with patents and intellectual property within member 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 working table will be oriented to the deepening and discussion of the themes that the companies of the work group have already identified and that concern:

  • Update on Patent Box
  • Patent licenses; Management of the inventions of the employees of companies with their own company name, but belonging to their own Group; Management of negotiations with competitors.
  • Patent verifications (patentability / free producibility) in the various phases of product development: how to better structure the process, in which development phases to be involved, when to consider the checks “closed”.
  • Useful patent information for R&D (eg: expired patents): how to exploit them quickly and easily
  • Patent search on non-patent literature tools and research strategies

To these themes we can add others, previously reported by the participants themselves to CRIT.
