#Lesson1 “The intellectual property is not a passive defensive element. It is an asset that must be activated in different ways, so as to generate return on investment in their generation. " “It is essential to think about the knowledge that organizations have as a tradable asset.” “To speed up the transfer process, it is necessary to think of collaboration with specialized agents.”
#Lesson2 “The target market is no longer our city, region or country, the knowledge market is the world. Therefore it is necessary that organizations structure their culture around international orientation.” “The economic map and knowledge of the world has completely changed and we must be aware of this and adapt. Asia, Latin America, and even Africa, are royal markets.” Photo: In the image, Laura Schoppe, President of Fuentek, and Airani Ramli, Vice-president (Business Development) of Transpacific IP, participating in the event, for videoconference, since USA and Singapur.
