Book for the World IP Day Conference 2021 today

Time is running out to secure a spot at the Faculty’s 13th World Intellectual Property Day Conference 2021.

This year’s conference will be held online on Friday, 23 April from 12.00 to 13.30.

This free event is open to all advocates, solicitors, devils, trainees, students and other professionals with an interest in IP. It will be chaired by Roisin Higgins QC, an IP law specialist, and Graeme McWilliams, former IP adviser at Standard Life.

The theme for this year’s World IP Day celebration is “IP & SMEs: Taking your Ideas to Market.” Our two guest speakers will be discussing this theme and some of the other ways in which IP is relevant for businesses today.

Gravitricity Managing Director Charlie Blair’s talk will focus on ‘Gravitricity’s IP journey.  A talk about how and why IP matters for innovative technology start-ups’. Former Head of Marine Energy in the Carbon Trust’s Innovation Team, Charlie is an experienced commercial leader, with 15 years’ experience in clean energy technology innovation and the IP issues involved.

The second speaker is Robert Hokin, Managing Partner, Greenbackers Investment Capital and former Chair of ecoConnect, a green industry forum.  Robert has spent 30 years in technology development and finance, with the last 14 focused on cleantech. Robert’s presentation is entitled 'How and why IP matters for investors and how Greenbackers helps SMEs get funded’.

Roisin Higgins said: “As we approach our 13th annual event, Graeme and I are delighted that the Faculty World IP Day Conference is still going strong. IP is a fascinating field to be involved in and we look forward to hearing what insights our guest speakers have to offer into the opportunities and challenges which IP presents for their businesses. Having had to cancel our conference last year, we are excited to be able to go online this year and hope this makes our event more accessible than ever.”
