SARGASSO Innovation Day

Intellectual Property Rights and Innovation – What are the strategies and what do you need to know?

Join us for a free webinar, on Thursday 26th November 10:00-12:00, where we  look into different approaches in managing IP-rights when developing new products and services. Intellectual property rights were created to encourage innovation and reward entrepreneurs and innovators but have turned out to be a potentially gruesome process, costing both time and money.

Experience and know-how will be shared from; 

Daniel Thorbjörnsson,  the law firm MAQS “Innovating with others – what to consider in the contractual relationships”

Per Bjerndell, RISE Technology Transfer Office. ”Patent – a multi-purpose tool”. Per is a patent nerd/specialist with a background in companies like AkzoNobel and AstraZeneca, now at RISE Technology Transfer Office where he is responsible for RISE’s patent operations.

Thorbjörn Lund, OPTIXMARINE; Optixmarine is a Postcode Lotteries Green Challenge nominee this year. They started their journey in 2015 when they invented a way of enabling ships optimization that never had been seen before. In the upcoming two years the design was taken to a full scale prototype unit. Vast tests were performed onboard a 13000 ton coastal oil tanker and after two thousand hours the result came back, proving the product enabled a total saving of fuel consumption and emissions with more than 25% approx, 1300ton CO2.
