    BEACON and Swansea University would like to invite you to this exciting and FREE Intellectual Property IP seminar to learn how intellectual property assets are key to your business success in the developing bio-economy. Most businesses owns and uses IP, but how do you identify and protect it and create value for your business? Some of the wide ranging topics we expect to be covered in this seminar include:

    o How BEACON can add value to your business and provide the “bridge to market” for new product, process and technology development

    o How to use IP effectively to protect and exploit opportunities in the marketplace

    Following a series of presentations by IP experts, there will be a Q&A session with opportunity to ask questions. The seminar will close with a lunch buffet and networking. The seminar spaces are offered free of charge, thanks to BEACON project funding by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and Welsh Government.

    RSVP by Monday 4th of February to ilscommunications@swansea.ac.uk
