IP Management in Times of Disruptive Technologies

A look back:

„IP Management in times of disruptive technologies“ was the topic of the corporate event by Maiwald and PATEV, which took place on 6 November 2017 in the Turmforum at the Main Station in Stuttgart.

Under the moderation of Dr. Edelbert Häfele (PATEV), Dr Ralf Kotitschke (Maiwald), Dr. Michael Beyer (PATEV) and Dr. Andreas Romberg (Staufen AG) on the podium discussed together with the participants 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.

At the end of the event, there was a get together and the participants were able to continue discussions over refreshments
