LESI Life Sciences Committee "IP and Licensing Best Practices for Deep Tech and AI Technologies"

The concept of “deep tech” refers to the intersection between artificial intelligence (AI), advanced materials and synthetic biology, oftentimes using two or more of these technologies to create and develop new products or services. This space is highly rich in IP and there are unique challenges and opportunities for businesses operating in this space.

The LESI Life Sciences committee will present a webinar discussing best practices for IP protection and licensing in this space, with particular emphasis on the life sciences industry. The panel will discuss planning an IP strategy covering freedom-to-operate and IP protection and management as well as best practices for IP transactions in this exciting and fast evolving field. The panelists will also tell us of their experiences in developing such technologies including pitfalls, stakeholder engagement and investment.

Moderator – Joanne Van Harmelen (ENSafrica)

Anna Gregson - Mathys & Squire
