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 2020!

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.

  • Basic course: Covering materials useful to experienced licensing professionals, including pointers for structuring a deal.

  • Intermediate course: Participants are encouraged to attend the intermediate course if they have attended the basic course and have 1 year of IP or research experience, or if they have 5 years of negotiation experience.

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.
