Life Science IP 2018 Conference

London, United Kingdom

Join us in London for the most interactive and case study-led Life Sciences IP event!

Intellectual Property is the life blood of any Life Science orgnisations, and the effective management, protection and enforcement of IP's is essential to achieve success in such a competitive market. Life Science IP 2018 is the only IP event designed for in-house IPR professionals with a focus on issues beyond mere patent enforcement and protection. With a focus on the ever-changing legal landscape, Supplementary Protection, along with a discussion on new monetisation strategies, the Life Science IP 2018 is not one to be missed.  

Key Highlights to be addressed:

  • Evaluate your approach to life sciences subject matter patent eligibility. Refresh your understanding and gain insight into the new challenges in sessions led by the EPO, Novartis and Bracco
  • Assess logical, flexible IP strategies to help you avoid potential pitfalls with Esteve, and Tigenix
  • Grasp the reality of patent innovation, and how to deliver on patient value with a gripping keynote given by UCB
  • Discover the variety of ways in which to monetise your company's IP without litigation with briefings from Strkyer, Harbour Litigation Funding and Ocean Tomo
  • Identify the best ways to protect patents, and how infringement proceedings are decided, hearing directly from the The Honourable Sir Richard Arnold of the UK High Court and Presiding Judge Dr Mathias Zigann from Regional Munich Court
