with Dr. hab. Marcin Kilanowski LL.M. (Harvard)
Course language: English

The aim of the workshop is to focus on protection of intellectual property. Protecting your own ideas, know-how or protecting your interests from the legal side is an important step towards a well-run business. Participants will learn how to protect their ideas or cooperate with others in the commercialization of the results of their work. During that part we will answer several question: What
is intellectual property? What are the different kinds of intellectual property? Why is it good to protect it? How to commercialize intellectual property? What are the different procedures of protection of intellectual rights?

Dr. hab. Marcin Kilanowski LL.M. (Harvard) - Experienced academic with strong interest in the field of policy and law formation in national and global setting. Being passioned about the application of academic knowledge not only into the socio-political sphere but also into economy relying on private-public partnerships to better solve human problems the very recent years of his professional development – culminating with managing multimillion ministerial projects focused on application of science to foster innovative solutions – have provided him with an opportunity to learn the ropes of management as a director of the Center for Entrepreneurship at Nicolaus Copernicus University (Poland) within the field of transfer of knowledge into the business world. He is currently a mentor at the acceleration program for start-ups at MIT Enterprise Forum.
