Mechanical Engineering / Process Engineering
There is hardly any industrial sector in which more intellectual property rights are filed than in mechanical engineering and process engineering. In addition to classic patent protection, which nowadays more than ever seen as an expression of the innovative strength of a company, design protection has moved more and more into the foreground, in particular when it comes to innovative products. These new innovative products must not only impress through their technical features, , but also nowadays through good product design.
Modern IP portfolio management is multidimensional and must include all kinds of intellectual property rights.
