We are delighted to be collaborating with the University of Manchester Innovation Factory for their Digital Health Series, ‘IP for Digital Health Technologies’.

Venner Shipley Partner’s, Gary Whiting and Peter Thorniley will be presenting via webinar for the first part of the event, covering how Intellectual Property (IP) rights can be put to work to reward and commercialise innovation. They will also look at the broader IP strategy during digital health product development, from conception and initial research to advertising, marketing and sales as well as future developments.

Gary and Peter will cover the various IP rights that can be used to protect a digital health product and then provide general tips and tricks using example case studies covering both hardware and software solutions and services. Examples include telemedicine, health apps, wearable devices, and virtual reality, as well as data driven approaches revolutionising research and R&D in molecular biology/biochemistry wet lab-driven projects in the life sciences sector. We will pay particular, but not exclusive, attention to how developments in artificial intelligence should be seen and understood in this context.
