Aims and objectivesThe valuation of patents has become more and more important since companies tend not only to protect their products from imitation or prevent patent infringement, but also to generate revenue from their patents. Although patent valuation is not equivalent to calculation, any decent patent valuation analyst needs to do the right math. In order to get the valuation analysis right, it is necessary to master the necessary mathematics. Our patent valuation workshop will provide attendees with the opportunity to train their patent valuation skills through four case studies which become more and more difficult, thus preparing them for future patent valuation challenges. Attendees will need to compute throughout the course.
Who should attend?
- Heads and members of IP/patent/ R&D Departments
- Patent and IP attorneys in private practice
- IP/IA valuation analysts and managers
