Assessing the IP Landscape

/ Madderns / News

Bill McFarlane and Chris Wilkinson recently presented at a TIA Event – New Technologies: assessing the IP landscape and applying nanotechnology hosted by Madderns on 28 October 2015.

Bill and Chris  discussed the basics of patent searching, how to read a patent specification to assess patentability and freedom to operate, and the exemptions to infringement that exist for performing experimental (ie R&D) activities. A copy of their presentation is available here.

David Lewis who is the Director of Flinders University’s Centre for Nanoscale Science and Technology also talked about the NanoConnect program that brings the Centre’s skills in nanotechnologies and advanced materials science to local SME’s, enabling them to understand the benefits of nanotechnology and providing a low-risk way to explore new practical applications of these technologies.
