Patent & License managementSystematic acquisition and exploitation of intellectual property rights
The systematic acquisition, protection and exploitation of patents, licenses and other sole and exclusive rights are decisive for the success or failure of innovative companies, universities and non-university R&D organizations.
The MCI is therefore offering an executive certificate course that takes an in-depth look at exploitation and protection strategies offering a competitive advantage.
For austria wirtschaftsservice gmbh (aws) – Austria’s national business promotion bank – the professional management of patents and licenses is an increasingly important asset for the country’s development-oriented economy and for its universities, and the aws runs two funding programs called tecma and uni:invent for the targeted application of know-how in the business world. This executive certificate course has been designed on the basis of collaboration between the aws and the MCI to provide specific training to meet this need for the future and provide companies with human resources for successful know-how management. In the eyes of the business promotion bank, the Tyrol – as a high-tech location – is the ideal setting for a training program that is unique in Europe.
The course is accredited by Consortium EuKTS - European Knowledge Transfer Society in accordance with EuKTS Curriculum for European Technology Transfer Professionals and EuKTS Accreditation criteria and procedures developed within the project EuKTS, funded by the European Commission, Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) . www.eukts.eu
Graduates of this Executive Certificate program also receive credits for the MCI's General Management Executive MBA and Master of Science in Management & Leadership MSc, both of which have been awarded the Premium Seal by the Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation (FIBAA). MCI’s business programs have also earned initial accreditation by AACSB International.
