Take the opportunity to discuss together with an experienced Patent Attorney the following topics:

  • Timing for filing a patent application
  • Identifying promising inventions (patentable inventions vs non-patentable inventions)
  • Filing one or more (strong) priority application(s)
  • International (PCT) patent application filing vs National/Regional filings
  • Patent life cycle management (SPC, PTE, specific pharma formulations, etc.)
  • Tuesday May 23rd
