CSR

Lucy is an Expert in Residence at the Newcastle upon Tyne Business and IP Centre (BIPC), providing pro bono advice to attendees at a monthly IP and Strategy clinic.

The clinics are open to anyone with a question about Intellectual Property rights and how to use them effectively to support their business goals.

This is a forum which provides a wonderful opportunity to reach a wider audience in our community than we might otherwise support.

Lucy also enjoys teaching on MBA and Masters programmes with Durham University.
