Justin Simpson, inovia’s founder and Australian Patent Attorney, will moderate a panel on 2011 IP trends and best practices at next week’s AUTM 2011 Annual Meeting in Las Vegas.
While often complicated, costly and time consuming, international patent filing is a critical part of profiting from new technologies and products. Yet in today’s economic climate, universities are experiencing financial pressures and clamoring for ways to save money. In a session entitled, “Cost-Effective International Patenting Strategies,” Simpson will lead a group of panelists to identify cost-saving tactics, share insight into their own international patenting strategies, discuss licensee issues and reveal economical best practices for foreign filing.
The panelists include technology transfer executives from:
- California Institute of Technology
- Emory University
- Indiana University
- University of Illinois
During the session, Simpson will also share findings from inovia’s upcoming “U.S. 2011 Global Patent & IP Trends Indicator,” the company’s annual look at how the economy impacted global IP strategy in 2010 and will affect foreign filing plans in 2011.
