Programme Synopsis

Understand aspects of the licensing of intellectual property (IP) – particularly for trade marks, copyright, patents, and registered designs – at the LES Singapore Basic and Intermediate Licensing Course 2019!

Organised together with the Licensing Executives Society (Singapore), our programme will cover the various principles and procedures involved in licensing negotiations. Learn how to effectively apply them in practice, through a “hands-on” scenario.

  • The basic course covers materials useful to experienced licensing professionals, including pointers for structuring a deal.
  • The intermediate course assumes attendees have at least five years of IP transaction experience, and will enhance practitioners’ appreciation of the topic.

These courses have been developed by licensing and IP lawyers and industry members, based on the accumulation of a wealth of experience in licensing, franchising, and technology transfer.

This course is relevant for research administrators, contracts managers, industry developers, business developers, technology transfer and commercialisation professionals, licensing professionals, lawyers, patent agents, technical directors, research managers, researchers and scientists.
