Andrea Williams and David Lang of Marks & Clerk LLP will be attending and speaking at the New Intergrated Pest Management Symposium this September at Swansea University, Wales. Andrea and David will be discussing the importance of protecting innovations in agritech with intellectual property.
Innovations in biotechnology, digital & precision agriculture and biopesticides are revolutionising the agricultural sector, bringing huge opportunities to agriculturalists who embrace new technologies. Innovators stand to benefit enormously from the intellectual property that they generate, but only if that intellectual property is adequately protected. In this talk, Andrea and David look at how innovations can be protected, with a particular focus on exploring what types of protection are available and practical considerations around obtaining IP in the agricultural sector.
The conference runs from 12th - 14th September, and Andrea and David's talk will take place on Tuesday 13th September at 15:30.
