2022 Insight Webinar Series – Insights on Intellectual Property Strategies for Canada’s Agri-Food Sector

We invite you to join us for the next webinar in our new series dedicated to insights surrounding research and innovation in the agri-food sector.

Webinar 3: Insights on Intellectual Property Strategies for Canada’s Agri-Food Sector

Intellectual property (IP) protection and commercialisation strategies for domestic innovation are fast growing areas when it comes to our Canadian agri-food industry.  Canada’s agricultural industry is facing challenges that come with growth especially as it relates to the commercialisation of IP on an international scale.  In this webinar, we have amassed an impressive panel who will dive into what Canadian companies can learn from technology commercialisation abroad, such as in the Middle East, and what opportunities are available especially as it relates to Canada’s supercluster approach.  We will discuss what it means to be disruptive, how rapidity effects the commercialisation process (both internally and externally) and lessons learned from domestic and international experiences.

Join us on April 21st from 1:00 – 2:30pm EDT as we review insights on Intellectual Property Strategies for Canada’s agri-food sector.
