How to protect your invention - patents and other means to safeguard inventions

Suppose you came up with a unique invention or innovation. Of course, you don't want someone else to run off with it. How do you actually protect your invention? Do you need to patent before publishing; how does that work in an academic environment? What are the benefits of patenting for researchers and their faculty? Which support and funding is available for patenting your innovation? These and related topics will be covered in webinar.

What can you expect?

During this webinar you will learn what a patent is, how to use it and how you can benefit from a patent. You will get information on who can file for a patent, what you can do with a patent, what is and what is not patentable. We provide you with an overview of the patenting process and how IXA can support you along the way.

Who benefits from this webinar?

We offer these webinars for the researchers from Amsterdam UMC, HvA, UvA, VU, NWO institutes and KNAW who want to learn more about the first and next steps in valorisation.
