Suppose you come up with a unique invention or innovation. Of course, you don't want someone else to run off with it. How do you actually protect your invention? Do you need to patent before publishing; how does that work in an academic environment? What are the benefits of patenting for researchers and their faculty? Which support and funding is available for patenting your innovation? These and related topics will be covered in this highly interactive workshop.

About the breakfast workshops
The Breakfast workshops cover various topics concerning sharing knowledge and thus creating impact in society. The workshops helps you to explore the possibilities of valorisation, knowledge transfer and entrepreneurship.
To get you started right away the workshops are highly interactive, information dense and practical: you can put it to use immediately.

The workshops are developed by IXA, the joint knowledge transfer office of HvA, UvA, VU and Amsterdam UMC. They are open to researchers from these universities and for colleagues from the KNAW and NWO Institutes.

Each institution has its own dedicated IXA team that offers researchers and PhD’s support in a broad sense: from starting new collaborations with outside parties, applying for research funding and target financing options to supporting the start of your own company.
