INNOVATION in PRACTICE | Special

Intellectual property management

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY (IP) MANAGEMENT

Intellectual property (IP) is as indispensable for a company’s success as innovation itself. Proper IP management can significantly improve a company’s position in the market, help it stand out from its competitors and increase its value. IP management is particularly important at the interface between science and industrial research, where progress often depends on technology transfer. To help you optimize your IP management and discuss best practices, we invite you to join our half-day workshop dedicated to this highly relevant subject.


Workshop topics

Our workshop participants will become acquainted with the general framework and success factors for efficient IP management. Presentations will feature practical examples from the industry that are as interesting as they are diverse. In “break-out” sessions, participants will be able to contribute their own questions to the dialogue. The workshop will conclude with practical tips on how to review and pragmatically (continue to) develop one’s own IP strategy.

  • Global trends in IP Management
  • Value generation through IP management
  • Basic terms and safeguards
  • Implementation of property rights in other countries, dealing with disputes
  • Evaluation of technologies and patents
  • Patent strategy and patent management
  • IP management in R&D collaborations
  • Licensing and exploitation
  • Patent portfolio management, internal policies
  • Cost optimization, handling of a few legally protected patents
  • Weaknesses and practical measures to overcome them
  • Instruments against piracy and counterfeiting
  • IP management and patent protection in an international context

DISRUPTIVE MORNING with Iftest

innovation event "DISRUPTIVE MORNING": Discuss technology and innovation strategies

Peer Briefing On Relevant Topics in Technology & Innovation with the technology leader in medical and industrial electronics Iftest AG.

DISRUPTIVE MORNING is an open and highly interactive platform for project leaders and R&D senior executives from various industries as well as for researchers in academia. The purpose of this platform is to provide new insights and ideas and to build solid, ongoing relationships between those at the forefront of innovation.

Highly innovative medtech start-up meets regulatory safety requirements

Cardiobridge, located in Hechingen in southern Germany, has developed an innovative cardio pump for use in a hospital setting. The company approached Iftest in 2009 about developing a new product that would be ready to be launched into the European market including CE marking. Based on an initial product concept, requirements and hazards, the two companies worked together to create an appropriate system architecture.

Iftest developed an electronic hardware and firmware product solution to mitigate those hazards, in particular concerning first-fault safety. The presentation will provide a detailed overview ranging from the project onset, a description of the regulatory landscape and how it affected product design and development, resulting in the final product that received regulatory approval in 2017.

Info-Event: Technologieprojekte finanzieren mit KMU-Instrument und Fast Track to Innovation (FTI)

KMU Instrument info-event

Ob Unternehmen mit Innovationen erfolgreich sind, hängt in hohem Masse vom Zugang zu den erforderlichen Finanzmitteln ab. Art und Anzahl der zur Verfügung stehenden Finanzierungsinstrumente in wissenschaftsnahen bzw. technologieorientierten Branchen sind vielfältig. Um Ihnen einen Überblick zu geben, lädt PARK INNOVAARE Sie zu unserem Info-Event ein.


(This information is only available in German.)

Besonders interessant sind dabei solche Geldquellen, die direkt den Unternehmen zugutekommen und nicht zur Verwässerung der eigenen Unternehmensanteile führen (also „non-dillutive“ sind) bzw. einen nicht-monetären Zusatznutzen aufweisen, der erheblich sein kann. Solche Instrumente und Wege gibt es, und wir stellen Sie Ihnen vor:

  • KMU-Instrument und Fast Track to Innovation (FTI)​​​​​​​: Die Schweiz hat seit Anfang 2017 Zugang zu zwei Finanzierungsinstrumenten innerhalb des EU-Programms Horizon 2020, dem KMU-Instrument und dem FTI. Mit dem KMU-Instrument können einzelne KMUs sich ohne Beteiligung wissenschaftlicher Partner um bis zu 2.5 Mio EUR direkter Projektfinanzierung bewerben. Der FTI stellt kleinen Konsortien von KMUs bzw. Grossunternehmen auch mit Beteiligung von wissenschaftlichen Partnern bis zu 3 Mio. EUR zur Verfügung.
  • Bundesbürgschaft (Switzerland Innovation): Der PARK INNOVAARE verfügt ab Januar 2018 mit der sog. Bundesbürgschaft über ein proprietäres Instrument der Finanzierungsunterstützung, mit dem Technologieunternehmen jeder Grösse deutlich verbilligte Bankkredite erhalten können.
  • Business Angel Club Aargau: Der Kanton Aargau pflegt vielfältige Kontakte zu Business Angels und baut diese mit dem in Gründung befindlichen „Business Angel Club Aargau“ aus. Welchen Nutzen hat dieses Netzwerk für Gründer und Start ups und wie findet man als Gründer den richtigen Business Angel?

Gemeinsam mit der m27 aus Wien, Spezialisten in der Förderberatung für EU-Mittel, sowie der aargauischen Standortförderung Aargau Services informieren wir über die über Chancen und Zugangswege zu den genannten Instrumenten.


Agenda

10:00 - 10:15   Warm-up & Coffee

10:15 - 10:30   PARK INNOVAARE: Die Bundesbürgschaft von Switzerland Innovation; Sprecher: Nils Gebhardt, innovAARE AG

Exklusives Service-Angebot für KMU:

Im Anschluss an die Veranstaltung können sich technologieorientierte KMU und Start-ups bzw. Spin-offs von wissenschaftlichen Institutionen, die kurz vor der Gründung stehen, in 1:1-Sessions mit den Spezialisten von m27 eine Vor-Evaluation für das KMU-Instrument durchführen (Anmeldung erforderlich). Dabei wird geprüft, ob für den nächsten Stichtag eine Bewerbung erfolgreich umgesetzt werden kann.

DISRUPTIVE MORNING with DECTRIS

innovation event "DISRUPTIVE MORNING": Discuss technology and innovation strategies

Peer Briefing On Relevant Topics in Technology & Innovation with the technology leader in X-Ray detection DECTRIS Ltd.

DISRUPTIVE MORNING is an open and highly interactive platform for project leaders and R&D senior executives from various industries as well as for researchers in academia. The purpose of this platform is to provide new insights and ideas and to build solid, ongoing relationships between those at the forefront of innovation. The event takes place on a regular basis and at different locations.


Agile Development at DECTRIS Ltd.

DECTRIS develops and produces hybrid photon counting X-Ray detectors for scientific and industrial customers. They are designed to determine deep molecular structures with an increasingly high level of precision – a task which requires the ongoing development of more advanced high-resolution detectors.

To keep up with its customers’ growing technology requirements, DECTRIS is constantly improving its products. However, innovations are difficult to plan in detail. That is why the development process must be able to adapt to the changing requirements and have a high level of agility. Unfortunately, reality in development adds another level of complexity, as not all aspects of the development process are equally agile.

At DECTRIS, for example, while the agile method "SCRUM" is used in software development, the implementation of this method is not always possible in hardware development. It is therefore important to find the best agile approaches and methods for each aspect of the development process. Dr. Matthias Schneebeli will present how the development teams at DECTRIS cope with that challenge.

 


Agenda

7:45                             Coffee

8:00 – 8:30                  Presentation

8:30 – 8:45                  Discussion

8:50                             Wrap up & End

The event will be held in English and / or German, depending on the speaker and the audience's preferences.

Speakers

Matthias Schneebeli, CTO DECTRIS AG

Dr. Matthias Schneebeli, CTO at DECTRIS AG
