Taking inspiration from the natural world to create efficient and elegant solutions to engineering challenges has become a popular process, and IP is often the key to the successful development and commercialisation of this technology.
HGF’s biomimetics IP team advises organisations involved in all stages of biomimetic engineering, providing tailored advice from the conception phase, where the final use might not yet be clear, through to commercialisation.
The team’s experience and unique mix of academic, technical, and legal backgrounds, across life sciences and engineering, allows for the crafting and implementation of an IP strategy that matches a client’s particular requirements, be that licensing the technology, product development, or commercialisation.
With particular expertise in biomimetic technology for aerospace, manufacturing, sensors and robotics, HGF works with academic institutions and businesses to create bespoke IP strategies, secure IP protection, perform landscaping or clearance searches, provide due diligence advice for licensing, and advise companies on IP strategies to enhance their business plan.
