On June 29, Marks & Clerk will be joined by innovation office leaders of Ontario’s three largest research universities to discuss the important role that intellectual property (IP) plays in the commercialization of university research. Inventorship, ownership and licensing of IP are just some of the factors that can impact future investment in later stages of commercialization. The discussion will center around the IP policy at each of the universities, and a comparison of the policies will be provided.
We are honoured to have Jennifer Fraser at the University of Toronto, Scott Inwood at the University of Waterloo, and Glen Crossley at McMaster University as our speakers. They will be discussing these matters with our very own Van Vekris and Cat Lovrics of the Toronto office of Marks & Clerk, who bring a wealth of knowledge in the areas of Canadian patent practice and IP clearance and rights acquisition.
