General Presentation of IP – 2 modules

The main source of wealth of a company can lie in its intellectual capital. Although the company may not be aware of it, intangible assets are part of its business assets and include intellectual property. Therefore this introductory course explains how to identify intangible assets, introduces the distinction between intellectual property and industrial property and defines what can and cannot be protected by intellectual property rights.


Intellectual property rights – 5 modules

This course contains modules dedicated to each intellectual property right, enabling the learner to understand the basic principles that govern patents, trademarks, designs and copyright, and discusses the question of rights ownership. It also contains a full module dedicated to the matter of software protection, database protection and intellectual property on the Internet.


Alternative to IPR – 1 module

Although not recognized as an intellectual property right, a trade secret is considered a means of protection of valuable intangible assets. Secrecy and confidentiality can give a competitive advantage. This course explains the concept of trade secret to spot the type of the information that can be protected, considering the limits and advantages of protection. Means of trade secret protection against competitors are extremely important: confidentiality and non-disclosure clauses on agreements.


IP valuation – 5 modules

This part of the training is about the calculation of intellectual property value and the exploitation of intellectual property, with a particular focus on licensing.


Strategic information – 3 modules

This course presents different available sources of patent, trademark and design information, and shows, through the use of many practical examples and exercises, how to collect, analyse and interpret patent information.
