Event description

Description

FOR BIOCITY BASED COMPANIES ONLY

A series of free 'top tips' events, curated to arm you with key skills for growing your business and specialist advice on those 'need to know' subjects, delivered by industry experts.



AdamsonJones will deliver an Intellectual Property Toolkit for Research and Product Design on Pharma & Medical Devices during this Top Tips event.

AdamsonJones attorneys are often asked questions about IP protection at a time when it is too late to obtain valid rights, or else after a significant IP threat has unexpectedly come to light. These scenarios can leave a company at a significant disadvantage from copying or excessive legal costs. The key to managing these risks is to synchronise IP considerations with your design/research process.

  • Typical stages in the product design process/research process
  • IP protection opportunities and threats for each stage
  • Benefits for the end product design and its commercial success

AdamsonJones has a team of patent and trade mark attorneys with technical backgrounds in chemistry, pharmaceuticals and medical devices, here on site at BioCity. Jenny Vaughan and David Gwilliam will talk you through the various IP considerations specific to the pharmaceutical research process and the medical devices product design process.
