Final Reminder: IP for GSE training day, 8 Feb 2017
Does your role involve intellectual property (IP)? Maybe you generate IP and would like to better understand what protection there is, or perhaps you've never thought about IP and simply want to know more. The Intellectual Property Office (IPO) is the government rights-granting body for all aspects of IP - patents, trade marks, designs and copyright. This GSE-specific IP training day is open to anyone in the GSE Profession. It includes time with a patent examiner working in your area of technology, and counts for CPD. For more information, please see the event flyer and poster. Contact: GSE@ipo.gov.uk if you are interested.
