What's on at Queen's Archive
Thursday 27th February, 1.00pm - 2.00pm, Basement Seminar Room, Centre for Cancer Research and Cell Biology, 97 Lisburn Road
This workshop is open to Principal Investigators, academic leads, Post-doc researchers, research staff and PhD students, as well as Master's students in the faculty of Medicine, Health and Life Sciences.
This workshop will take participants through a case study on the IP aspects of CRISPR; and how a brilliant technology can go wrong when the IP is badly managed.
The EPO requires that all priority applicants must assign their rights before the filing date of any PCT Application. So far so boring - right? These issues were crucial to the outcome of the CRISPR Patent battles at the EPO. This workshop will use the CRISPR Patent battles as a case study -but knowledge of, or interest in, CRISPR per se is not essential.
The session will cover:
• What is CRISPR?
• The Debate: Who ‘Owns’ CRISPR?
• The Debate: Who will win the Nobel Prize for CRISPR?
• Inter-Institution Rivalry
• The Latest
• What have we learnt and what is next?
Participants will be able to develop their knowledge and skills in patent filings and considerations around inventorship and IP ownership.
Some understanding of the basics of IP (what is IP and what is a patent) will be assumed.
Light refreshments will be provided at 12:40pm; Workshop begins at 1pm
Spaces are limited, registration necessary.
