Mr. Hans Gilliams, Secretary-General and Vice-President, Belgian Association of European Law, Partner Eubelius.
Dr. Ir. Dirk Callaerts, CEO, Eyetronics.
High-tech companies often have to deal with international markets, international customers and international competitors. This is no small task. This module explicitly deals with the issue of international deployment of the technological capabilities of a high-tech venture. Questions addressed are: At what point to 'go international'?; The do's and the don'ts of protecting your knowledge and intellectual property when 'going international'; Commercial models available to you and when to choose one (e.g. licensing models versus product models); What to do if international customers pay for co-development?.
