What is there to consider about patent when you want to participate in Green Challenge?

When you register for Green Challenge, it is important to note that you already at registration ought to upload your abstract for publication in an abstract book.

This book will be published on our website and send to the judges of the conference to read. Therefore, you have to consider how many details you are describing in your abstract if you are considering a patent.


In Denmark, you cannot take out a patent on a concept. So, you can easily present your project without worrying. Avoid telling about the part of your project that you can  take out a patent on if you want to do that. Avoid details about the specific technologies. Tell about the concept.


Keep in mind though; not all projects are suited for taking out a patent. There are many other opportunities to brand and sell your idea.
