Yesterday, IP Draughts gave a day’s training in Northern Ireland, to an in-house team at a life sciences company. Thanks to everyone in the company for being so welcoming and for making the day’s discussion interesting.
While he was there, he received confirmation of a trip to Oslo in December, to give essentially the same one-day talk, Advanced Intellectual Property Licensing. The talk will be hosted by the Norwegian Intellectual Property Office. IP Draughts has previously run training for the European Patent Office and the UK Intellectual Property Office.
In January, IP Draughts will be travelling to New Zealand with his mother to visit some relatives. In the middle of the trip he is planning to visit Australia. He is hoping to fit in some paid training while he is there. However, discussions with potentially interested parties have not yet crystallised into a booking, and final plans for the trip are now being made. If you know of anyone who might be interested in hosting a day’s course on international IP licensing, or other IP-related or transactional topics (eg R&D agreements, clinical trial agreements, drafting contracts generally) please let Mark know. The host might be a company, a law firm, a government body (eg a Patent Office) or a university. Courses could be designed for lawyers, for commercial or TT managers or administrators. Likely dates would be between 29 January and 3 February 2015.
So far, and including the forthcoming talk in Oslo, IP Draughts has run professional training on IP and commercial transactions in:
- Northern Ireland
- Republic of Ireland
- United States
If you are interested in having IP Draughts run an in-house training course in the UK or elsewhere, please get in touch. Some of the topics on which courses might be run can be found on the course tab at the top of this blog page.
