10. October 2018 @ 08:30 - 12:15

TLSC and Bryn Aarflot hereby invites you to our next breakfast meeting on October 10th!

IPR and life science: Safeguard your discoveries!

Do you want to know how to protect your intellectual property rights? Do you know how to keep your IPR safe?

Bryn Aarflot will take you through the steps you need to protect your IPR, with a focus on practical step-by-step guides. The seminar will give you the entire roadmap, from a fledgling startup up to and including your first international PCT application.

Futhermore, Kim Heglund, managing director at INHIBIO, will share experience with managing IPR and Jon Herman Ulvensøen will provide additional remarks about funding for Life Science startups.

The program is intended for Life Science Startups in their early phase – from their first ideas and with a focus on protection of Immaterial Property assets.

A follow-up seminar for more mature/established companies will be considered.
