Seminar announcement: „Patent protection of digital solutions for SMEs: from the app to the business model“
On April 30 2020, a seminar on the subject of „Patentschutz digitaler Lösungen für KMU: von der App bis zum Geschäftsmodell“ will be organized by the Europe Enterprise Network (EEN) and the Standortagentur Tirol. The protection of intellectual property offers SMEs an opportunity to assert themselves in digitally transforming business eco-systems, to secure their own profitable position and to create added value with innovation. If it is possible to have a legally enforceable exclusivity on a customer benefit in one’s own range of services, premium prices can be enforced, and market positions can be designed in digital business models.
In this seminar, you will learn from concrete, European case studies from different industries how the protection of intellectual property works. You will receive – especially for digital topics – practice-oriented methods and tools suitable for medium-sized companies in order to expand and secure the technical advantage against the competition in the long term.
