Learn from information and intellectual property experts at Cambridge meeting
Speakers from GSK, Marks & Clerk and Taylor Wessing among those at event held at Homerton.
Innovation, valuation, licensing - that’s the theme for the third Cambridge Information and Intellectual Property Meeting.
Taking place on Wednesday July 11 at Homerton College Conference Centre, it will bring together people with an interest in technology innovation and commercialisation.
Seven speakers, seven exhibitors and plenty of networking is on offer at the event, which starts with lunch at 1pm.
CIIPM3 is organised by two local information and IP practitioners - Extract Information, founded by Jane List and based in Litlington, and Patent Search & Information Management, founded by Stuart Newbold and based in Walpole Road, Cambridge.
Stuart said: “The meeting offers not only great opportunities for networking, but importantly opportunities to learn from a range of people with insights for ambitious technology companies, about setting up collaborations, understanding how to make the most of UK grants and assistance, using IP to protect innovation, how to define a marketplace and best practice on the successful commercialisation of technologies.”
Jane and Stuart founded their businesses in 2013, following careers which spanned the IP, information and technology industries. CIIPM was conceived to bring the fields together.
Recognising the need for an independent meeting, where technology innovators could meet with IP specialists, legal teams, investors and information providers in a neutral space to make sense of ‘big data’, artificial intelligence, changing IP issues and patent, legal and commercial information challenges.
The speakers include Roya Ghafele, executive director of Oxfirst, Rebecca Davies, of Marks & Clerk, Maddy Marley, senior information scientist, global patents, at GSK, Paul Storer, of UK IPO, David Bloom, of Safeguard IP, Lawrence Bickers, of Coller IP and Talitha Shkopiak, of Taylor Wessing
They will cover topics including the use of IP valuation methods in assessing damages, patent and know-how licensing, risk mitigation in IP, the use of IP insurance, using IP for business intelligence research, product licensing strategies and using full text databases in clearance searches.
