The Logistics of Ideas – TOP SEMINAR
The seminar is addressed to Intellectual Property practitioners, as well as business and technology professionals that are eager to gain a new perspective on the role of patents as a key strategic tool for the deployment of business strategies.
The attention of scholars is often focused on sometimes intricate aspects of patent law, while the media like to follow high profile litigations. Less attention is dedicated to the essential role that patents play in the business operations of enterprises at all levels: in start-ups, small companies, corporations and even countries. As a tool that transform intangibles such as “innovation” and “technology” into tradable assets, they enable an open innovation marketplace in our increasingly knowledge-based society.
Our speakers come from diverse backgrounds such as academia, private practice, consulting and corporate, and will share with the audience their experience and perspective on the management of intellectual assets. As innovation plays such a central role in our society, patents and Intellectual Property are not “the lawyers’ business”, but the very foundation of everybody’s business
The afternoon will be chaired by Director, IP Business Development Roberto Castagno, Nokia Technologies
