Chemical Patents - Securing Protection for your Invention

Inventions dependent on chemistry span many different technology areas - from coatings and polymers, to consumer goods and cosmetics.  As well as giving an overview of the patent process, and the types of chemical inventions you can patent, the talk will also give key tips on how to arrive at a patent that will withstand the patent examination process, and be robust to challenges from third parties.  For example, framing the patent around the central part of the invention, and getting the right kind of experimental data, is key for innovators within the chemical space to secure useful and resilient patent protection.

In addition, the talk will cover what innovators can hope to gain from the patent process - how they can derive value from patents, from increasing their attractiveness to investors, to gaining leverage over their competitors.


Who is the webinar aimed at?

This session will be useful to anyone that wants to find out more about the patent process, including companies that already have one or more patents, and companies who are considering filing a patent. 

This talk would be suited to people with a variety of job titles:
•    CEOs: as the talk will cover what value you can get from a patent
•    CTOs and R&D personnel: as the talk will cover the technical aspects of patents

What are the webinar requirements?

The talk will be pitched at a relatively introductory level, so no prior knowledge about patents is required. 

How does it work?

This one-hour webinar will be broadcast via Zoom and delegate questions can be posed through the Q&A function.
