For a potential entrepreneur, the road from science to successful start-up is paved with challenges that might seem daunting at first. Securing intellectual property for a new technology is one such challenge - what steps need to be taken? What needs to be considered? Which questions need to be answered and which rules observed?
Join us at the Cyber Valley workshop on July 15th, where experts in the realm of intellectual property will help you gain a solid overview of the milestones involved in patenting your business idea.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the workshop will be virtual (Zoom). If you would like to participate, please register here
Drawing on an example, our experts will describe a new technology's route to market as well as the relevant legal regulations. They will address a range of topics, including: invention, ownership, know-how, software, open source license, patent law, earnings, and many others.
While the event is virtual, participants will be invited to interact with the experts and discuss concrete questions and challenges.
Our experts have extensive experience in the relevant fields and look forward to sharing their profound knowledge. They are located at the technology transfer departments of the Universities of Stuttgart and Tübingen, Max Planck Innovation GmbH, the legal department of the Max Planck Society, and an external guest from the law firm Boehmert & Boehmert. We also have a founder with us, who can report from her own experience regarding the practical implementation.
