Having begun his career in the 1980s as the first intellectual property account manager for a research organisation, Pierre Breesé was a pioneer in creating value from research. He knows the research community very well, its organisation and specific characteristics, and has passed on to his teams the pleasure of working with researchers.
IP TRUST advises many research organisations and value-creative structures about detecting patentable inventions and protecting research results and also provides assistance with the rationalisation of patent portfolios, value-creative strategies, negotiating agreements and raising the awareness of doctoral students.
President of the Innovation and Research Committee on the French National Council of Engineers and Scientists, Pierre Breesé builds strong connections between scientific work and creating industrial value.
The quality of the initial patent application is a key factor in successfully creating value. Writing a patent application often requires in-depth information provided by the researcher to fully meet all demands for the description, and in particular to increase the potential value created. It is not enough to repeat a scientific publication; writing an application often involves “applicatory development”.
This work is an interaction between the patent writer and the researcher, if possible in the presence of the account manager, during a work session covering knowledge of the researcher’s work, positioning in relation to the state of the art identified by a real-time search in the patent database then followed by a discussion to identify possible industrial applications.
If this “interactive” session is not possible, we can process the preparation of a patent application quickly to avoid delays in any publishing projects.
