Introduction to Intellectual property

Natacha Giger-Janski is a microentrepreneur and an industrial property engineer. She also has a PhD in Molecular and Cellular Biology. She is currently self-employed in the industrial property, a sector in which she has been working since 2012. From April 2019, she has been working as a consultant at Brevetarium, an independent firm she founded in 2019.

Ms. Giger-Janski provided a lecture entitled “Introduction to Intellectual property” in April 2021 to the Bioceb students at AgroParisTech. The students were initiated to key aspects of intellectual property such as patents, legal basis, patent documents, Espacenet database etc… The lecture gave rise to a question & answer session dedicated to the projects carried out by the Bioceb students such as the Green Line Projects. This introduction to intellectual property will thus be very useful for the students to develop their projects.

Testimony from Ms. Giger-Janski
"It is never too early to understand the benefits of industrial property. I attach great importance to making students and (new) entrepreneurs aware of this subject. The idea is not to make them experts, but it is valuable for them to remember a few concepts. This way, when the time comes, they can look more closely at the issue, use the tools at their disposal, and avoid simple mistakes. I have no doubt that Bioceb students will need these concepts in their careers."
