The workshop will cover IP as value driver for start-ups, how to monetise IP, and various methods to protect your IP. The guest lecturers will draw upon their experiences from working at Dolby Laboratories, one of the most successful licensing companies, as well as from Adobe Systems, a software powerhouse, and at Vienna Technical University, the leading research institution in Austria as ranked by the number of patent and utility model applications in 2016. During the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to get first-hand accounts on how business strategy is formed around IP, what opportunities and challenges companies have to face, and how to maximise the value of IP, as well as how IP is handled at Vienna Technical University.
