Brian Hinman, CIPO at Philips, is in Gothenburg to lecture in the Intellectual Property Strategies course for the students at the master’s programs supported by CIP. He will speak on the topic of intellectual property strategies in practice, both from the perspective of his role at Philips and from his rigorous experience from the industry, having held senior executive positions at some of the world’s leading corporations. In the afternoon we will welcome our professional network to join the discussion on the topic of NPEs and the role of defensive patent aggregation, where Brian Hinman will draw from his unique experience as a leader and entrepreneur in this field. He will give his input on the history and the future of the problems these actors solve and the role they play in the evolving IP marketplace, including some “war stories” from the trenches.
CIP FORUM 2016 has come to an end and we would like to sincerely thank all participants for your intriguing input and active contribution to the discussions on convergence for industry and university. In particular, we give our warmest thanks to our partners for making the event possible. Together the participants have shared innovative ideas, research, and practical experiences from a global perspective, and it has been our delight to see them interact with our students, who have gained valuable insight into the current hot topics of our field. The goal of the event was to provide a comprehensive understanding of the key convergence issues by leading global policy makers, executives, and experts in an open environment where all participants have an opportunity to partake in the dialogue. That goal was truly reached.
We already now look forward to CIP FORUM 2018.
