A new position has been created at the global Foundry Research Centre of Excellence in Enschede, the Netherlands. Previously, Intellectual Property (IP) support was provided remotely but the need for increased IP services to the Foundry business has provided a wonderful opportunity for some-one to take a leading role in managing the IP activities for the business.
You will sit with your client who will look to you for sound strategic patent advice; you will have ownership to the IP budget and you will determine how the portfolio is managed. You will have other colleagues from the wider IP Group with whom you will share ideas and thoughts on how IP can better leverage the business. In short, you determine the future success of the IP function for Foundry and you will have a global reach to other sites of the business.
