A MedTech West seminar: Safeguard your medtech invention with patent, trademark and design protection

Welcome to a MedTech West lunchseminar with Linus Byström and Erik Krahbichler from KIPA AB. In this seminar Linus Byström and Erik Krahbichler will share their “dos and don’ts” when it comes to medtech inventions. Which part of my medtech invention can and should I protect? When and how should I do it, in order to secure its value in the most appropriate way? The presentation will focus on practical aspects – how to prioritize and what to avoid. Medical methods... Read More
