As an industry networking platform, the summit provides meaningful and valuable insights in IP generation as well as managing, protecting, enforcing and monetising intellectual property portfolios in order to accelerate stakeholders’ collaboration as a vehicle for higher revenues and profit generation.
Due to the sensitive nature of the topics discussed, LPS-London IP Summit is the only IP event organised under the Chatham House Rule*, offering safe and secure environment to speakers and to attendees in order to encourage openness and sharing of information. Participation at the event is by invitation only
IP intensive industries are in the centre of global innovation and sustainable economic development. UK businesses invest over £65 billion per annum in Intellectual Property. In many of the blue chip companies today, 80% or more of their market value is credited to intangible assets, as for the small to medium size enterprises – the only real value may be in the intellectual property they own. IP intensive sectors are contributing over 4.2% of the UK’s GDP and employ 3.72% of the total UK work force.
The diversity of portfolio management techniques used today is immense, but as practice shows the complexity of external drivers – such as the current economic crisis, legal systems’ vast differences, market restrictions, etc. - can have a devastating effect on companies’ patent portfolios, with more and more falling off the “patent cliff ”.
The London IP Summit is a one day international conference and it is one of kind in the UK. The event brings together IP regulators, policy makers, Board-level IP managers, as well as IP experts and investors in a dialogue designed to address and to discuss best practices and solutions to enhance global, regional and national patent management strategies. The event addresses the key challenges and issues facing IP professionals today and provides meaningful and valuable insights into the market.
CEO/COO's, VP's of Intellectual Property, Chief Patent Officers (CPO), Chief Technology Officers (CTO), R&D/R&T Senior Management, General Counsels, IP Managers, Patent Attorneys, IP Consultants, Licensing Experts, Sovereign Fund Managers, IP Investment Fund Managers, IP Corporate Venture Capital Fund Managers, Heads of Innovation and Research at UK and European Colleges and Universities are some of the few experts that have voiced their professional views on the agenda topics through the years.
