Strategic Intellectual Property Forum
Valuing IP inside out
Valuing IP Inside Out
Intellectual property (IP) may adopt many forms - patents, trademarks, goodwill, designs, copyright and know-how. But what all of these forms have in common is that they provide key IP assets potentially with substantial commercial and innovation potential. Knowing how to leverage these IP assets requires a balanced blend of IP awareness, commercial understanding and familiarity with IP portfolio management. Committed to supporting the UK industry, IfM’s Centre for Technology Management (CTM) and Avidity IP launched the Strategic Intellectual Property Forum (SIPF) earlier this year to help companies understand and exploit their IP.
Following feedback from the participants at the first SIPF, the second SIPF event on Tuesday 8th December 2015 will focus on IP valuation, which we intend broadly to cover not only approaches to valuing internal IP portfolios, but also the valuation or appraisal of external IP assets (e.g., when undergoing technology acquisitions). The half-day SIPF event will cover different perspectives on this topic from different industry sectors.
Please join our LinkedIn group created specifically to form an IP community in the Cambridge area and beyond.
Who should attend
The event caters for decision makers in large, mid-caps but also small companies and high-tech start-ups such as CTOs, portfolio managers, VPs Technology, Heads of IP / licensing from the Cambridge cluster and beyond. All talks will allow sufficient time for discussion.
Attendance is free of charge, but pre-event registration is required. Come along and engage in an expert community for discussions on strategic IP topics. We look forward welcoming you to the IfM!
