How IP clinics work

The 30-minute sessions will be held during and after thetraining workshops.

If you book training on day two when registering, youwill be prompted to indicate whether you are also interested in a complementaryIP clinics coaching session.

You can choose up to two areas of expertise (see Experts from three areas above) fromwhich a coach will be allocated. You can then add non‑confidential keywords whichbest describe the topic you are interested in or the challenge you would liketo discuss with your expert, for example: patentability of ICT/software-relatedinventions, co-operation with universities, enforcement of IPRs, licensingcontracts in the biotech area, reacting to infringement warning letters.

This will make it easier to identify the best expert for yourcoaching session. The committee will then allocate you an expert and a time slot.It will take your preferences and the times of your other booked training sessionsinto account as far as possible. Capacity is limited and places will be allocated on a first come, firstserved basis.
