Welcome back Leo from @turinginst @IfMCambridge @Cambridge_Eng @IIPMcambridge

Good to see you back the other day at the IfM from your secondment to The Alan Turing Institute. This is where Leo is now based for the next year to further boost his skills to apply AI, machine and deep learning to patent data. We look forward to hearing how the briliant minds you meet in London help you with cracking on and moving the research frontier.


Recap 7th Strategic IP Forum @IfMCambridge @Cambridge_Eng @IIPMCambridge @AvidityIP

We had four excellent talks last week at the 7th Strategic IP Forum in Cambridge. Many thanks to all participants and particularly our speakers. Thanks to Alison McGhee from F-Star @Fstar_Biotech for sharing insight into their learning journal for developing a modular IP business model for their platform technology and applications. Massive thanks als to Quentin Harmer from Endomag @endomag for his inspriring talk about IP business models in the pharma and medtech industries with excellent case studies. We then had the chance to learn from Joan Beckner from Schlumberger about IP challenges in a completely different industry, i.e. oil exploration and production. Thank you for the very insightful talk getting us thinking about territorial IP challenges. Last, but certainly not least, thanks to Kevin Fournier from IBM @IBM telling us about his work on Blockchain patenting. We very much enjoyed learning more about the technology as szcg and bits-and-pieces that are potentially patentable, i.e. the patent races going on. We look forward to welcoming participants again to the 8th Strategic IP Forum in 2019.
