Everyone at Anderson Towers is currently flat-out busy, helping clients with the pre-Christmas rush of projects.
But that doesn’t stop the planning for conferences and events in 2018. Below are a few that will involve IP Draughts as speaker and/or organiser.
- ASTP-Proton’s training course on technology licensing, to be held in Sitges (near Barcelona) from 24-26 January 2018. IP Draughts will give his session on the nuts and bolts of licence agreements, and help Jeff Skinner to run a licensing case study.
- University of Geneva and LES conference on technology transactions, to be held in Geneva on 8 February 2018. IP Draughts will give a paper on patent licensing, in which he will suggest that some international standards for licence agreements should be developed, perhaps via UNCITRAL.
- The 6th, annual outing of University College London’s 5-day course on IP transactions, to be held in London from 16-20 April 2018. IP Draughts created this course and is its convenor, as well as being one of approximately 30 speakers, who are mostly experienced IP lawyers. The course is designed for newly-qualified IP lawyers, but we also attract patent and trade mark attorneys and licensing managers, from the UK and overseas.
- American Bar Association conference on life sciences, to be held in Copenhagen from 10-12 June 2018. IP Draughts is part of the planning committee for this conference (at the request of the Law Society of England and Wales) and will be moderating a session on patient data.
In addition, IP Draughts will be running some one-day courses at UCL in the coming months. Details will follow once dates are set.
