HGF IP in Healthcare Virtual Conference 2021

February 2021

Event date: 14th January 2021

In 2021, HGF’s IP in Healthcare Conference will be delivered virtually through a series of webinars across January, February and March. The webinars will review the latest IP and related issues in the pharmaceuticals, life sciences and medical device sectors.

The healthcare sector has a long history of life-changing innovation, with new and evolving technology at its core. Changes in human interaction have played a significant role in this success story, with people’s ability to impart personal details, interact with websites, and use apps to obtain medical advice and track chronic conditions.

All of this, along with developments in personalised medicine, use of AI, big data, robotics, VR and new drug delivery systems, not to mention the recent Covid-19 treatments and vaccine developments, means that IP in healthcare has never been more important and we will be discussing these topics in more detail in our upcoming webinars.
