Intellectual Property: a Q&A event for SMEs and innovators


If you’ve developed a new product or process, chances are that you have some valuable intellectual property (IP) in your business.

During this online event we’ll outline how you can grow your business  by identifying and making the most of your IP.

Intellectual Property can be a complex area, especially if it’s your first time engaging with the world of patents, trade marks and designs. This is your chance to ask the experts your burning questions.

What you’ll learn:

  • Intellectual property – what is it? Ownership and common myths
  • Why is it important for a business to protect their brands and products with registration?
  • How are patents and trade marks registered (specifically in Australia) – what’s the basic process?

If you have questions about choosing IP protection and ways to improve your business by making the most of the intellectual property you already own, then this free event is for you.
