Enterprise Europe Network event: Protecting your Intellectual Property

Enterprise Europe Network is running an interactive workshop to help manufacturing companies understand how to best manage their intellectual property.

Key elements of the workshop will include:

• perform your own IP audit
• decide what IP protection to put in place
• understand practical factors affecting the value of your IP
• plan for commercial exploitation of IP rights
• learn about Enterprise Europe Network's Innovate 2 Succeed programme
