The Spanish company das-Nano offers the first Terahertz-based technology systems on the market designed to provide non-destructive, non-contact, fast and reliable full area characterisation of surfaces, materials and coatings. From the very beginning, das-Nano has been aware of the fact that its intellectual property (IP) assets and their correct protection could be a decisive factor with regard to the success or failure of the business, and that a sound IP strategy should be developed to safeguard and possibly improve its competitiveness. Plus, protecting its intellectual assets was relevant to enter into market-driven R&D collaborative projects and standardization activities.
