Description

In order to manage and monetize patents, we need a systematic approach to measure, evaluate and value them. Numerous headlines in business reports refer to intangible asset disputes and we know that a large part of corporate value is defined by its intellectual property and the means to defend it.  So how can we put "a value" on patents ?

This training course provides you with an introduction on patent valuation. We will have a closer look at how patents can be quantified from a quality point of view, and we will introduce you to some standard approaches on finding the monetary value of patents. The training course includes an extensive case study making use of EPO's patent evaluation tool: IPscore.
