Software Specific Challenges in Technology Transfer

During this three-day course you will dive into the software-specific challenges in technology transfer. Kicking off with an overview of inventions, patents, licenses, and business concepts that are related to software. 

The challenges of software and which factors to be aware of when considering the basics will also be addressed, in addition to less-familiar forms of IP protection. Other points for discussion are big data, marketing channels, and software-based spin-offs.
