This Webcast will help business leaders understand their own IP position better, and hopefully provide ideas on how to protect and monetise that IP. We will include the findings from a number of business case studies that Knowledge Peers have researched, together with the chance to ask an expert live and online about your own IP position".

    Better understanding of your IP position
    Ideas for protecting and monetising your IP more effectively
