Discover the strategic opportunities offered by intellectual property rights

On 7 November, the patent cells of BBRI, Centexbel, Sirris and Essenscia are organising a half-day of information on the opportunities offered to companies by intellectual property rights.

In a fast changing world, where continual innovations are affecting both people and companies and their management, it is essential to be aware of intellectual property rights.

Perhaps you are asking questions like these:

  • How do I define a strategic position regarding intellectual property rights?
  • How can I get inspired by the world around me?
  • What financial benefits can I derive from my innovations?

The patent cells of BBRI, Centexbel, Sirris and Essenscia are organising a half-day of information (2pm – 5pm) on these topics on 7 November 2019 at the BBRI experimental centre in Limelette.

The following experts will deal with these questions: Jan-Diederik Lindemans of Crowell & Moring, Simon Dewulf of PatentInspiration and David Verwilghen of Deloitte.

Jan-Diederik Lindemans (Crowell & Moring) is a lawyer who has been specialising for almost two decades in applications related to know-how protection and intellectual property. Based on his experience, he advises companies on the importance of a defensive and/or offensive strategic plan in the field of intellectual property rights.
In his presentation, Jan-Diederik will examine the following topics: How can you protect your ideas appropriately? How can you best value your ideas? How do you develop a global strategy regarding intellectual property rights?

Simon Dewulf is well known as one of the most inspiring speakers in the world on 'generating ideas'. From Australia, he has been contributing to the development of 'PatentInspiration', a tool that lets all companies use patents to generate new ideas.
Using some concrete examples, Simon will demonstrate how you can reinvent your products.

David Verwilghen is Senior Manager in the 'Global Investment & Innovation Incentive Services'  team of Deloitte, where one of the objectives is to advise companies in the application of fiscal incentives related to research and development, to innovation and to sustainable development.
Based on his experience in managing tax deduction for the innovation revenues of their clients and his many exchanges with the ruling service of SPF (Belgium Federal Public Service), he will demonstrate how to benefit from these tax advantages.

After the session, you will be able to chat with the speakers.
