"Patents: How to Protect Your Ideas"
The LMU Center for NanoScience in cooperation with the GraduateCenterLMU is offering a workshop on "Patents: How to Protect Your Ideas" from March 27 to 28, 2017.
The workshop will provide doctoral candidates and postdocs from the natural sciences with an overview about how to claim and protect intellectual property (IP) effectively. The talks on the first afternoon will impart the most important knowledge about IP, as well as inventor's rights and duties as a civil service employee. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to discuss career opportunities in IP with a patent attorney and a patent examiner from the European Patent Office. On the second day, participants will actively transfer their knowledge by working on a case study in teams.
