“Are standards and patents mutually exclusive?”

Standards and patents are two different tools with different goals and strengths. Knowing when to use which is key in understanding how to monetise your research. This session will cover these key features, the pros and the cons of both tools through practical examples.

CEN and CENELEC have developed together with the IPR Helpdesk a factsheet on Standards and IPR. Participants can also meet the IPR Helpdesk at their exhibition stand.


Detailed information can be found at CEN-CENELEC Guide 8 "CEN-CENELEC Guidelines for Implementation of the Common IPR Policy on Patent and other statutory intellectual property rights based on inventions".
