Why join IAMN?
Given the critical importance of IP and the role it plays in the success of commercializing R&D, you can’t afford not to use the invaluable knowledge and resources offered and openly shared through the IAM Network. Whether you’re the director of licensing or an innovative researcher, everyone has something not only to gain but also to give. I have received an incredible amount of knowledge, insight and best practices from this network and am always able to implement an improvement in my own R&D Organization upon my return. I encourage you to join one of our sessions and share non-confidential experiences. We’d certainly love to hear from you and welcome your participation!
