Sunday Surprises

September has arrived, and with it, new IP events and content to enjoy. Here's the latest updates.

Conference on the 25th Anniversary of the EU Biotechnology Directive 98/44/EC

This two-day conference will take place on Thursday 14 and Friday 15 September 2023 at Maynooth University, Ireland. The event, organised by Professor Aisling McMahon (Maynooth University), Dr Karen Walsh (Maynooth University), and Professor Naomi Hawkins (University of Sheffield) aims to assess the role, operation and impact of the Biotechnology Directive at 25 years and to explore the future likely challenges for the Directive.

Intellectual property academics, practitioners and those interested in the regulation of biotechnological inventions are encouraged to attend. There is no fee to attend, but registration is required via Eventbrite.

For those interested in patents, a new podcast has been launched on Spotify: IP Provocations, a podcast by Professors Rebecca Giblin and Kimberlee Weatherall. The podcast is a project of the Intellectual Property Research Institute of Australia (IPRIA), with additional support from IP Australia, Melbourne Law School, and Sydney Law School. The series asks: "Patents are supposed to facilitate cutting edge science and innovation, and enable the spread of ideas and knowledge. But is that how they actually work in practice?"

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
