Immateriella rättigheter och tillgångar för Life Science

PRV har i samarbete med Sveriges life science inkubatorer tagit fram ett antal utbildningsmoduler som handlar om olika aspekter av hantering av immateriella tillgångar och patentinformation.

Utbildningsmodulerna ska hjälpa tidiga life science bolag, start-ups och entreprenörer att få bättre förståelse för viktiga och tidskritiska frågor om patent, varumärke och design och även andra immateriella tillgångar som upphovsrätt, avtal, know-how och kundrelationer. Modulerna har en tyngdpunkt på patent och patentinformation eftersom den tekniska lösningen ofta är mycket central inom life science.

Genom ökad kunskap kan företagen fatta medvetna beslut och förutsättningarna för en lyckad affär och utvecklingsresa ökar.

Modulerna är på engelska med engelsk textning. Du väljer textning genom att trycka på symbolen med CC i videospelaren.
