Managing intellectual property in fusion

 (Click to view larger version...)
The European ITER Domestic Agency F4E is organizing a conference in Barcelona on 28 and 29 November 2011 together with the European Commission and the World Intellectual Property Organization's Arbitration and Mediation Center.

The conference will raise the awareness of potential F4E contractors and beneficiaries about the management of intellectual property in the fusion program, communicate the opportunities that fusion research may offer for innovation and technology transfer, and analyze dispute prevention and resolution techniques in this area. Some practical tools for dealing with intellectual property will also be presented.

The conference targets project managers, in-house intellectual property practitioners and representatives from companies and research institutions currently operating with F4E or considering future involvement in F4E activities.

The conference will showcase available examples generated in fusion that may have applications in other sectors. Companies and/or research institutions willing to contribute with their experience and innovations to this event are welcome to participate.
