Appleyard Lees to award £1,500 IP Prize at Cambridge Independent Science and Technology Awards 2023
One finalist at the Cambridge Independent Science and Technology Awards will walk away with a prize worth £1,500, courtesy of intellectual property law specialists Appleyard Lees.
The company is supporting the Biotech Company of the Year category but the winner of this prize could be any of our finalists.
The winner will be revealed at the end of the ceremony, taking place on Thursday, May 18 at the Faculty of Science and Engineering at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge. It will also be livestreamed.
Dr Edward Rainsford, who was on the judging panel for the awards, said: “Appleyard Lees is proud to have been a sponsor of the Cambridge Independent Science and Technology Awards since it started in 2017 and we will again be offering £1,500 worth of IP services to one winner selected from this year’s shortlisted nominees.
“The Appleyard Lees Cambridge office has grown rapidly in recent years and, as a full service IP law firm with patent attorneys, trade mark attorneys, and specialist solicitors, we can provide a wide range of services to assist the winner with their intellectual property needs.
“We will work with the winner to understand their business and how we can support their requirements, such as IP strategy, patent draft, trade mark filing, due diligence, and freedom to operate.
“As ever, the calibre of the nominees has been very high and it has been a tough decision to narrow them down to one winner. We are excited to reveal the winner at this year’s awards ceremony, and look forward to the chance to meet and interact with more of the incredible Cambridge innovation community.”
