Purpose and goal
An innovation check has been used to evaluate a project idea in an early phase with the help of external competence. It has been used to develop a strategy for managing intangible assets by a consultant with expert knowledge.
Expected results and effects
Through the IP check, we have prepared our IP-strategy before the expected growth and market introduction. The strategy handles: - Complete protection (design, brand, domain name) along with patents - Patent coverage - management of other markets / internationalization outside the EU - licensing for the above markets
Planned approach and implementation
IP strategy includes three main moments: A) Identification of existing intellectual property (IA), including existing IP and IPR (i.e. patents, trademarks, domain names, etc.), as well as gathering information about existing agreements with relevant stakeholders in the business ecosystem B) Environmental analysis, including mapping of competitors and other relevant players focusing on IP and IA C) Developing a forward-looking IP strategy and a plan for implementation and key actions, synchronized with the company´s existing business plan.
