“Intellectual Property (Management)”

Woensdag 03 september 2014 // 08:00 uur

Each year developments in innovative, highly sophisticated technologies and applications result in new intellectual property for state of the art technology. The European Space Agency is one of the organisations which owns a lot of intellectual property (IP). This intellectual property has significant commercial potential for non-space applications. This woensdagmorgen.nl will give you more information about Intellectual Property.

Achim Krebs, from Haseltine Lake, will give general information about Intellectual Property and what the role of Intellectual Property is in business. Nuria Hernandez from the Technology Transfer Office of the European Space Agency, will present which IP's from ESA are available for exploitation and Harm Botter, from the company ExxFire, will give his view and experience from an entrepreneurial piont of view regarding Intellectual Property.
