150 G Room (Salt Palace Convention Center)

This session will cover topics relevant to effectively translating chemical engineering know how into intellectual property assets. The course will cover strategic considerations in determining whether technology should be patented or kept as a trade secret as well as some of the legal requirements for obtaining utility patent, design patent, plant patent or trade secret protection. A discussion on the importance of patent claims will provide a foundation for patent claim and foreign filing strategies for CleanTech, NanoTech, and Chemical Technologies. The course is designed to provide a foundation so that one can be led to raise and address certain issues upon the identification of potentially valuable knowledge. It will provide the opportunity for technical exchange between the participants and the presenter.
