IP Management in Times of Disruptive Technologies

A look back:

On 29 November 2017, a corporate presentation of Maiwald and PATEV with a discussion panel on “IP Management in times of disruptive technologies” took place at ‘Mazda Classic – Automobil Museum Frey’, Augsburg.

Under the moderation of Dr Edelbert Häfele (PATEV), participants discussed the demands on internal IP Management Processes, what adjustments in times of disruptive business models are necessary and how a lean patent management involving research and development, product management and distribution can be realised.

Afterwards, the visitors had a get-together and over refreshments were able to continue discussions in the special surroundings of the car museum.
