Looking to protect your intellectual property? 

When you create a new idea, invention or innovation, you should always consider whether to obtain protection for your intellectual property. It does not happen on its own.   

New ideas are born, for example, as a result of research or thesis projects and simply when talking amongst friends. Ideas are usually conceived by identifying a problem in an existing solution and resolving this problem by developing a new solution.  

When you come up with a new way to resolve a problem, you will have created an idea. Once you put your idea into practice and test it, you will have created an invention. If your invention adds value into people’s lives, you will have created an innovation.
