In anticipation of the LES100 Training Course later this year (November 2020), our Young Members’ Co-Chairs have organised a lunchtime webinar that aims to answer your questions on the licensing of intellectual property (IP).

The webinar also follows the recent publication of the IP Licensing Business Briefing by LESI, which was co-authored by Alfred Chaouat, Adam Coughlin, Eszter Szakács and Anke Nestler.  This publication, as well as the associated business briefings on IP Valuation and IP Management, can be found at:

A panel of experts from a range of fields has been assembled, and they will be tasked with answering questions submitted by attendees on all areas of licensing.

Our question is: what do you want to know about IP licensing?

The session is aimed at:

-SMEs and entrepreneurs wanting an introduction to licensing IP;

-people who are new to, or considering a career in, licensing;

-businesses seeking guidance on identifying IP assets, and exploiting/monetising IP assets;

-practitioners (patent attorneys, trade mark attorneys and lawyers) looking to build upon their licensing knowledge; and

-students interested in learning the basics of IP and how commercialisation through licensing works.

What will the webinar cover?
That is up to you! Submit your questions in advance of the webinar, and (once moderated) the panel will hopefully address all of the questions asked.

When you have confirmed your attendance at the event, please send the questions you would like to ask to (for the attention of Rose Smalley and Adam Coughlin) by 1 July 2020.
