What will the talk cover?

Digital Innovation in healthcare is progressing at a rapid rate, but research from economists at the European Patent Office shows that it is those innovative SMEs and start-ups who are using the IP system effectively that are seeing the most growth and adoption of their technologies. Therefore, it is essential that those developing these disrupting technologies understand the specific challenges in protecting digital innovation in the HealthTech sector.

In this talk, Jack will present some examples of his client’s technology providing innovative solutions to some key challenges in healthcare and explain the steps they have taken to protect their technology to capture the maximum value of their innovation.
