Job Description

Your challenge

At Philips Lighting, we believe innovation shapes our lives. That's why we've been investing continually in new technologies for over 100 years. This has allowed us to create a substantial portfolio of intellectual property (IP).

Philips Lighting has created technological solutions that have improved many people's lives. However, we know that although innovation sparks new markets and even new industries, bringing these ideas to market can be difficult. Drawing on the ideas of others through licensing can make the process much easier and open up new business opportunities. This is where licensing our Intellectual Property (IP) can make all the difference.

  • Providing guidance and advice to internal stakeholders and external resources, while assuring full compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.

  • Supporting compliance checks for ensuring that all administrative aspects of the Philips SSL license royalty examination program are fulfilled.
