Seminar on IP Valuation and Commercialisation for SMEs
Manila, 22-23 March 2004

This two-day seminar featuring European, ASEAN and Filipino experts played an important role in raising public awareness, in particular the SME sector and the academia on IP valuation and commercialisation. The event attracted over 100 participants, many of whom expressing appreciation for the knowledge offered by the seminar and were prompted to follow up. "We will immediately take stock of what we own in order to conduct an inventory of our IP assets," said Attorney Aurora L.T. Perez on the impact of the course on participants' work. Another participant M.O.Sahagun identified strategies on IP management and how these should be aligned to the overall business strategies of a company, plus how to best extract the value from IP assets as the most important aspects learned from the seminar. Academic Dr Maribel Nonato wrote in her assessment of the event that "as director of the research centre, I will echo this input to the researchers and open their yes on how their intellectual property assets can be protected and utilized."
