  22. 22. Centre of Systems BiotechnologyForms of IP• Patent protection• Trade Mark protection• Design protection• Copyright rotection• Trade and industrial secretsts• •© Fraunhofer
  23. 23. Centre of Systems BiotechnologyWe will use Trade Secret protection • In business areas where services are provided • In areas in of own research • In areas where relationship with customers determines that this form of protection is appropriate• •© Fraunhofer
  24. 24. Centre of Systems BiotechnologyWe will use patent protection • in key business areas for platform technology development • when patents are required by customers to improve their business • to establish new concepts derived from our research • as a tool in business negotiations•© Fraunhofer
  25. 25. Centre of Systems Biotechnology• Value of having a patent is not in dispute as it allows exclusivity to develop products• Having a patent however is of no value per se, unless its application leads to new product development and new value generation• Therefore, field of invention, market knowledge and process/product value are key• Two routes identify the right opportunities•© Fraunhofer
  26. 26.

  28. 28. Routes of IP GenerationComparison• Patenting process identical• Patenting strategy identical• Market analysis identical• Commercial strategies were completely different• Market driven approach had fewer commercial uncertainties© Fraunhofer
  29. 29. IP Generation at FCR• We use both R&D driven and market driven approaches• For R&D driven process: • Publication review strategy • Develop a patenting strategy for broad coverage • Internal/external background IP review • Consultation with internal partners for field of application and potential value of invention • Apply for patent protection in suitable geographies© Fraunhofer
  30. 30. IP Generation at FCR• We use both R&D driven and market driven appraoches• For market driven process: • Close collaboration with industrial partner • Internal/external background IP review • Design a patenting strategy for specific application • Apply for patent protection in suitable geographies© Fraunhofer
  31. 31. IP Generation at FCR• FCR does not have in-house patent agent/s• However, we do have staff with IP experience• Carry out training in IP searches, analysis and strategic developments• We will work with local firms providing IP services well as overseas companies• FCR/FG owns IP from platform development• We will share IP depending on level of compensation© Fraunhofer
  32. 32. IP Generation at FCR• Publications are key to maintain highest scientific standing• IP generation will have incentives• Entrepreneureal culture will be encouraged• Partnerships with outsid companbies will be encouraged• Spin-offs will be formed based on the body of IP and market opportunity© Fraunhofer
  33. 33. Summary• IP generation is central to FCRs activities• Platform technology development offers many opportunities for innovation• Proximity to industry offers many opportunities for applying this IP and developing additional IP• Strategy development is essential for success © Fraunhofer
