A useful insight into the business of patent law and intellectual property protection was given to interested PhD and diploma students of CeNS at the workshop Patent protection for research in natural sciences. This one-day workshop was organized by students of the International Doctorate Program NanoBioTechnology (IDK-NBT) which is hosted by CeNS. In cooperation with the European Patent Office, competent speakers were invited to the workshop which was held at the University of Augsburg on February 23rd.

The talks gave the students an overview about how to claim and protect their Intellectual Property effectively in case that they develop new and innovative ideas and devices. For this informative workshop, the organizers could win Roland Grenz (BayernPatent/ ZWW), Dr. Norbert Hansen (Maiwald Patentanwalts GmbH), Dr. Christian Kallinger (European Patent Office) and CeNS member Prof. Achim Wixforth (Spin-Off founder) to share their knowledge and experiences.
