DIE-NIGHT: IP Management for Digital Business Models

A look back:

On 27 November 2017, under the auspices of the German Institute for Inventions (Deutsches Institut für Erfindungswesen, D.I.E.) and organized by Maiwald, a reception attended by over 100 invited guests from industry, patent law firms, IP service providers and science took place in Munich on the topic of “IP management for digital business models”.

The event dealt with the implementation of DIN Standard DIN77006 relating to quality in intellectual property management. The subject-matter was clearly explained using best practice examples from Rittal, Claas and Thyssen Krupp. Both the organizers (Brügmann Software GmbH, Maiwald Patentanwaltsgesellschaft mbH, Wurzerer & Kollegen GmbH) as well as the participants were highly satisfied with the success of the event. More information on the evening, including reports, presentations and pictures, can be found under:
