Protect Your Innovation

This is a past event.

Wednesday, October 6, 2021 5:00pm to 7:00pm

This is a past event.

At this workshop we discuss the fundamentals of intellectual property such as patents, trademarks, licensing, and trade secrets, including how to initiate a prior art discovery with freely available resources. 

We  will start with an introduction into the practical considerations and trade-offs involved in protecting your idea.  

Michigan Technological University’s own IP expert, Licensed Patent Agent and Associate Vice President for Research Administration Jim Baker with compelling IP scenarios.   Librarian and PTRC Representative Annelise Doll will provide us with an overview of patents and trademarks, hands-on searching activities and information about Michigan Tech’s Patent and Trademark Research Center, part of the US Patent and Trademark Office's nationwide program of PTRC’s.
