The CEO of the Government Office for Technology Transfer (GOTT), Alison Campbell, is moderating an interesting new podcast series ("Intellectual property (IP) as key commercial asset: the essentials") on behalf of the European Patent Office (EPO).
In this third episode, Alison speaks to Riccardo Priore, a patent analyst and IP consultant at the PATLIB (Patent Information Centres) of the Area Science Park in Trieste, Italy.
Before seeking IP protection, it is crucial to understand the landscape and potential scope of your IP rights, and so, many new entrepreneurs will ask the question “where do I start?”. Alison and Riccardo discuss how entrepreneurs can use a free resource: the PATLIB network, which offers practical advice. PATLIBS can help innovators at the early stages of their IP journey by offering guidance, practical help, and a wealth of useful connections, all for free.
