  • How Automotive and CPG Industries are broadening their patent claims using UX Jun 20 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Jason Lye, IAM 300 Strategist and CTO of Lycoworks with Ruta from PatSnap
    With innovation budgets increasing each year and R&D efficiency decreasing in the western world, many companies are starting to get creative with how they structure and what claims they include in a patent. This is not only to give their technology better protection but to also increase the value of their claims.

    One of the methods that is becoming prevalent in the Automotive and Consumer Good Industries is the use of Human Experience factors in a patent. By link your technology to the User Experience provided by it. This is useful when filing in crowded patent spaces, enabling broader protection at lower cost than a "picket fence" IP strategy.

    Jason Lye (IAM 300 Strategist), and Founder of Lyco Works, who has used this technique with many of his clients will be exploring some of these patents and how to make the most out of User Experience in this webinar.
  • How smart manufacturing is digitally redefining the automotive industry Jun 6 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Paul Mairl, Chief Digital Officer at GKN Metallurgy
    In an age where technology and cars have never been more intertwined, experts believe the automotive companies that are leaders in the smart manufacturing race will be the ones who benefit from competitive advantages in the future. A recent survey of automotive companies by Capgemini’s Digital Transformation Institute revealed that 49% of automotive companies have invested over $250mn in smart factory innovation.

    The ability to integrate currently siloed systems throughout manufacturing processes with smart manufacturing techniques is clearly a move in the right direction. And of course, the integration isn’t just about software and connectivity tools, it's about making better business decisions by using data to solve problems before they happen.

    However, the reality of integrating such innovative processes for many companies can be challenging—especially for large organisations. So how can you integrate smart manufacturing techniques, and what are the short, and long-term benefits of doing so?

    PatSnap is pleased to welcome Paul Mairl, Chief Digital Officer at GKN Metallurgy, to explore the barriers, and techniques of successfully integrating smart manufacturing processes into your business. Paul has worked in various roles within GKN for over 25 years and is now responsible for setting up GKN Metallurgy’s digital system in line with Industry 4.0.

  • Chemical patents: What can they tell us about failing drug discovery? May 23 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Roshan Jumnah, Chemical IP Data Analyst at PatSnap
    Modern drug discovery appears in many ways to be well-defined with tried-and-tested approaches to acquire success. However, some research processes often lead to very few new discoveries and sometimes stagnation of an entire research area.

    So, does it always have to be this way? One method to re-boot a failing area of research is to employ disruptive chemical methods and thinking to kick-start a process of rejuvenation.

    We invite you to our webinar with Roshan Jumnah, Chemical IP data analyst at PatSnap to explore:

    - Can we identify the reasons why drug discovery is failing?
    - Chemical disruption, its uses, and the impact of this new approach
    - The ways chemical disruption can reverse failing drug discovery in the future.

  • How to make the IP system work for technology transfer Recorded: Apr 18 2018 48 mins
    Jeremy Holmes, Head of Intellectual Property at Imperial Innovations
    Technology transfer offices are often seen as the facilitators of innovation between academic institutions and industry. However, they have a massive responsibility to transfer the wealth of innovation from within universities to the commercial world, in the most timely and cost-efficient way possible. Does the current Intellectual Property system facilitate their requirements, or can it sometimes hinder innovation?

    In this webinar, we will be joined by Jeremy Holmes, Head of intellectual property at Imperial Innovations, the technology transfer office of Imperial College, London. Jeremy will be talking about the ingredients needed for a successful partnership, and future, between technology transfers and commercial world. We will also be discussing:

    • Why education of IP is so important, for academics & business professionals
    • How to find the balance between freedom & creativity, with the need for intellectual property protection
    • Whether you need patents to have a successful university spin out.
  • Intellectual Property and its role in strategic decision making Recorded: Apr 12 2018 43 mins
    Pete Hotten & Nick Pay from NuAge Vision
    Although intellectual property is often a large asset to any innovative company it can be hard to justify to senior management the costs that come with it. Patents especially, need to be renewed yearly and also can become very costly in the case of infringement that leads to litigation.

    So how can you explain to your senior management that your IP is a key essential asset? This is what Nick Pay and Pete Hotten will be discussing in this webinar.

    You will learn:

    - How to best showcase the value of your IP

  • Protect your innovations, products and business with IP insurance Recorded: Mar 21 2018 37 mins
    Erik Alsegard & Lewis Parle from CFC Underwriting | Ruta from PatSnap
    The primary reason why people register their IP - including trademarks patents - is to protect their ideas from being used and monetized by others. Companies across the world spend trillions of dollars on research and patent thousands of new technologies each year, so why would you ever need IP insurance?

    We see dozens of cases each year where companies and individuals are claiming infringement upon their IP and that's when IP insurance comes into play.

    PatSnap is joined by Erik Alsegard, IP Practice Leader and Lewis Parle, In-House Solicitor and IP Underwriter, from CFC Underwriting to discuss the whys and hows of IP Insurance.

    Join this webinar to learn about the risks of IP, if you should consider insurance and what are the pros and cons of the options available to you when it comes to protecting your Intellectual Property assets.
  • Mitigating risk through IP strategy and innovation alignment Recorded: Mar 7 2018 60 mins
    Candice Landry from 10e5 Solutions | Jon Calvert from ClearViewIP | Jim Hinton from Bereskin & Parr
    The term innovation can refer to various stages within a product development cycle, and an invention created in this process can be protected by various forms of intellectual property. Most inventions are created to solve and address consumer needs and problems. To do that job, products enter the market, creating opportunities for the business or the inventor who owns it. A businesses’ IP strategy plays an important role in the success of a new product by ensuring competitive advantage in the market, for now and the future.

    However, IP protection can often be seen as an output of product development, leaving the organisation open to risk—whether it's in a new or an existing market. So how can you align IP protection with your invention creation to ensure your IP team is involved at the most effective points throughout the product development process? Too early could mean a slower time to market, and too late could mean lost opportunities in the market.

    In this webinar, we’ll be discussing how your organisation can mitigate risk, by aligning your IP and innovation strategy. We will also be looking at:

    - Examples of successful organisations who have aligned their IP and innovation
    - Intellectual property & open innovation
    - Why IP should be a part of the innovation process, not an event

  • Evolution and Adoption of Biometrics Recorded: Dec 6 2017 41 mins
    Niosha Kayhani | Cubics and Ruta Sudmantaite from PatSnap
    Biometrics has slowly become more and more present in our everyday lives. We no longer bat an eyelid when our phones require us to use a finger print for a payment or even when its how you get into your gym. So whats the next step?

    Cubic, who are the people behind the payment technology of the London Transport System, have devised a system that can double the “throughput” of an entrance—from 25 people crossing a gate’s threshold per minute, to about 50 or 60. This idea could mean that we would no longer have gates at tube stations across London and instead your phone in combination with your face.

    Niosha Kayhani of Cubic will be taking us through the development of this Technology and also the growing uses and industry that is Biometrics.
  • Patents: Sell, License or Scrap Recorded: Nov 23 2017 53 mins
    Duncan Clark at PatSnap
    A well-managed patent portfolio will protect your most valuable assets, while delivering a strong return on investment. But actively managing your intellectual property assets is time-consuming and complex – particularly if your portfolio spans across multiple territories and INPADOC families.

    IP managers often have to make difficult renewal or abandonment decisions without the benefit of detailed technical knowledge, working via spreadsheets or collaborating via emails to understand the importance of a particular patent. The risk of making a wrong choice when it comes to selling, licensing or abandoning patents can sometimes push them to the safe option of ‘do nothing’.

    For businesses, doing nothing means wasting budget on unnecessary or inflated renewal fees or missed opportunities to generate new revenue. How can we resolve some of these inefficiencies?

    In this webinar, Duncan Clark will be discussing how patent portfolio managers can make better decisions on whether to sell, license, or scrap patents. Attendees will learn about common approaches to portfolio management and how to reduce costs and improve portfolio ROI through the strategic use of tools and innovation data.
