Dublin IP and R&D Summit 2022

February 2022

HGF is sponsoring Dublin IP and R&D Summit 2022, being held on 22nd-23rd March at The Convention Centre Dublin.

After a hugely successful launch event in 2019, The Dublin IP and R&D Summit has grown to become a 2 day Intellectual Property and R&D Conference and Expo. The summit is split into two parts, starting with a full day IP Commercialisation Workshop and followed by an interactive IP and R&D Conference on the 23rd of March, consisting of two streams of discussions looking at the most contemporary trends in the world of innovation.

HGF Partner & Patent Attorney Craig Thomson is Panel Chair for the session From a Pawn to a King using IP! Why IP strategy is key in taking your business to the next level:

  • What, when, how and why to protect?
  • Most effective ways to use IP as a revenue driver
  • How important are Trade Secrets for SMEs?

Craig will be joined by Jeanne Kelly (LK Shields Solicitors), David Goodfellow (Aptiv), Sandrine Guillermin (Transitions Optical) and Barnaby Dorfman (Go1).

Date: 23rd March

Time: 9:35am

HGF Patent Directors Marie Walsh and Dr Rosi Armstrong will also be attending the event.
