The seminar is free of charge.

Every 26 April World Intellectual Property Day is celebrated to promote discussion of the role of intellectual property in encouraging innovation and creativity. In order to celebrate the IP Day, the Estonian Patent Office is going to hold a seminar "How to protect the intellectual assets of a company?". The seminar will take place on the 21 April in Viru Conference Centre.

On this seminar we provide useful information on how to protect the intellectual assets of a company, such as inventions, industrial designs, trade marks and domain names. On the practical side, an entrepreneur introduces the birth story of  their uniquely designed product. We also talk about the risks of intellectual propery, and how to avoid them.

If you are not sure if there is unprotected intellectual property in your company's business activities, you are welcome to attend our seminar where you will get all the necessary knowledge and can also ask for advice.

We welcome entrepreneurs, designers, inventors, students and everyone else who is interested in this subject.
