Webinar for start-ups: “IP & Software – how to manage your intellectual assets and know-how when entering collaborations”


RCTT invites all interested to participate in the open webinar for start-ups: “IP & Software – how to manage your intellectual assets and know-how when entering collaborations"

Friday, 8 October 2021, 11-12:30 o'clock CEST

Workshop in cooperation with the European IP Helpdesk

Speaker: Dr. Eugene Sweeney (CEO Iambic Innovation)


Collaborations can involve complexity in managing the interrelationships between confidentiality, use of existing IP, publication of information, commercialization, and decision-making around IP rights. These complexities mean that it is important to consider IP management at the outset. Collaborations can result in the creation of new IP in inventions, documents, products, services, processes, software, and other material. Consideration and management of potential IP issues can help to prevent delays and avoid disputes as the project progresses.

This webinar will cover key IP issues which need to be addressed in collaborations, particularly IP management, protection, and licensing. The focus will be on ICT and software technologies, which have their own unique challenges and opportunities with respect to IP Rights (IPR), exploitation and business models.

After the webinar, participants should have a better understanding of how to protect and to leverage their intellectual assets, and how to negotiate and manage mutually beneficial collaborations.
