10:30 AM - 1:30 PM

The oil and gas industry in western Canada is pressured to recover natural resources more efficiently, at lower costs and with minimal impact on the environment. Innovation leads to technology solutions to many such challenges. However, the process of invention is complete only with the IP protection provided in law.
Now, more than ever, companies are following alternative paths to monetize patents that would otherwise sit on the shelf. As such, companies need well-conceived strategies to develop, grow and leverage their core assets in the market for competitive and financial gain. This conference will explore patent strategies across the monetization spectrum. Learn tips and strategies to maximize the strategic and financial value from of you IP portfolios, manage the buying, selling and licensing process, conduct due diligence, manage risks and participate successfully in the market-mak¬ing process. Don’t miss this valuable opportunity to hear strategies and practice tips for monetizing your patents.
