You have a good idea but you don't know how to protect it? You don't know what you are or aren't supposed to say? You have no affliation with the law?
You have come to the right place! Our experts will guide you along the way and ensure that all legal procedures are followed properly, so that you don't have to worry about that.
The term Intellectual Property (IP) refers to any form of intellectual property. Including patents and copyright (software, publications), design rights, etc..
The moment you have an idea, you as an inventor, creator or writer, always start with filling in an Invention Disclosure Form (IDF). All relevant data is noted so that the IP Officer can perform a first scan into the possibilities of protecting the idea.
When the quick scan is possitive the IP Officer, when necessary, will start the procedure for patent application. This will often be in the form of a U.S. provisional patent application. Depending on the business case this will be followed by an international patent application.
The IP Officer monitors the process and deadlines. And when the business case leads to a license or a spin-off with a license agreement, he will draw up the contract.
We also provide:
- IP workshops
- help in filling in IP clauses in research contracts and grant applications
