SKF is one of the world's leaders when it comes to innovation & managing a broad Intellectual Property (IP) portfolio successfully. Efficient work processes & taking advantage of digitalisation by working with the platform provider IamIP are two of several important ways that SKF now is maximising the value of its IP portfolio. The complexity of managing IP is increasing: Between 2000 & 2015, the number of annually filed patents has doubled to reach 3 million patents. On average 100.000 new patent documents are published every week, thus it is necessary for companies to identify those that might impact their business, to follow technical trends & to find new opportunities. Another challenge is how to collaborate across teams with such large amounts of information & how to efficiently bridge the gap between R&D & legal departments.
Come & listen to some insights of SKF regarding these challenges.
