In the 21st Century, many of the world’s economies and businesses are increasingly reliant on their intellectual property as economic drivers. A modern company’s value is up to 80% intangible property and 20% “brick and mortar” assets.
When economies and businesses with significant intellectual property are unable to fully understand and utilise intellectual property, they are less capable of investing in further innovation and intellectual property, which has a chilling effect on research and development pipelines and economies.
If you are a practitioner or student in the field of innovation, research and development or intellectual property, do not miss the opportunity to learn from regional and world-renowned experts in innovation and intellectual property. Learn how to set up systems and strategies within your organisation to make the most of innovations and rapidly developing technological changes. Understand the dynamic economic landscape, influenced by everything from automated technologies, artificial intelligence to the ongoing global pandemic, which has led us to rethink global supply chains and the system of protecting and benefiting from innovations that are vital to our health.
