Cross border collaboration: working with the right partner and protecting your intellectual property. This interactive morning workshop will be given by the Enterprise Europe Network, the world’s largest cross-border Business to Business network, funded by the European Commission and Innovate UK, and Marks & Clerk LLP, an international firm of intellectual property (IP) attorneys, solicitors and valuation experts. The event will provide discussions on: The opportunities of working internationally, The value of partnerships and how they can be identified, The importance of protecting and owning IP assets such as patents & trade marks, and Options for commercialisation when working in partnerships and producing joint products and services. The workshop will also include a panel of SMEs who have experience in cross border collaboration, who will be able to share their opinion of the process. Up to four SMEs will each present for five minutes, before the combined panel takes questions from the audience. Attendees will leave the event knowing how to identify strategic partners and how to maximise the benefits they can bring, while protecting themselves from potential IP challenges involved in partnerships.
