Glögg Mingle – Extending the value of your product with IP intelligence, clear strategies, and reliable data

For Life Science companies to have strong products they need to have a clear and defined vision that is supported by reliable and transparent data. In this event, you will hear from experts in creating value from two different perspectives. Bergenstråhle & Partners AB will talk through the IP perspective while LINK Medical will support the conversation through the product development lens.

Recurrent IP Intelligence efforts are an unsurpassed tool to extend value to your product. This is achieved by doing a market analysis to highlight critical aspects and assessable actionable tasks. Clinical trials are characterized by being a process, where added insights and findings become visible during the different stages of this process. These emerging opportunities enable the value-building of your product and can be identified through gradual IP Intelligence efforts. In addition to this, a study design that has relevant and correct clinical data is crucial for how data is presented to key stakeholders like investors.

Date: Thursday, 8th of December 2022
Time: 15:00 – 17:00 CET
Venue: Telegrafgatan 4, SE-169 72 Solna, Sweden
