It is important when considering the realisation of a business idea or technical product to survey the issues that the company faces in the areas of intellectual property rights, technology and commerce. At Uppdragshuset we can contribute technical and commercial advice, in addition to services offered by, for example, patent agencies and law firms.
In order to be successful in the innovation process, it is fundamental to know, for example, which tools are available. It is also vital to gain access to suitable analyses and decision-support factors. Uppdragshuset has worked in such matters with the Confederation of Swedish Enterprise (Svenskt Näringsliv), VINNOVA, ALMI and several other national centres of innovation.
We advise and educate
Uppdragshuset has long experience of supporting our customers in development projects. We offer tailored courses and advisory services within intellectual property rights and global technical analysis. We target companies that need to increase their knowledge and obtain support in issues of intellectual property rights.
We can help to couple your business strategies with the internal intellectual property activities, and with the practical use of intellectual property rights (IPR) in the market. Examples of the questions faced are:
- What opportunities are there in intellectual property rights, open source, copyright, etc.? What are the advantages and disadvantages? We analyse the factors that play a role in the decision whether to apply IPR protection as part of the business strategy and how to do it.
- How can the company develop its IP activities? What organisational structures are needed, and how can innovative ideas be picked up and exploited? We act as a sounding board, and we aim to improve the innovation process.
