The Intellectual Assets Centre can help your organisation manage its intellectual assets better.
- Intellectual Assets (IA) Diagnostic Services: This free service will both assist you in the identification of your key intellectual assets and also identify whether opportunities exist to derive further commercial benefit from these assets.
- Intellectual Assets Action Planning: If your business wishes to take forward the recommendations of the IA Diagnostic, the Service will help to create an action plan for a proposed IA Management Project.
- IA Management Projects: IA Management Projects may, for example, cover: developing and safeguarding “know how” and / or technology in key markets; licensing in or acquiring new innovations to grow the business; or protecting IA and IP in collaborative partnerships or joint ventures. The IA Specialists can help you to both scope the project – and identify whether it may be eligible for funding support.
- IA Workshop programmes supported by 1:1 Consultancy: These workshop programmes offer proven in depth support packages tailored to the needs of key sectors. Participating companies benefit from both interactive group workshop activity and up to three days 1:1 “in company” consultancy delivered by the IA Specialists.
