Chem_Match 2021

Collaborations can involve complexity in managing the interrelationships between confidentiality, use of existing IP, publication of information, commercialisation 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, & licensing. The focus will be on ICT & software technologies, which have their own unique challenges.
