2020 has been a difficult year for everyone, with many events cancelled or moved online, including the CIIPM Annual Meeting. However, CIIPM is starting 2021 in a mood of optimism, with the 1st virtual Cambridge Information & Intellectual Property Meeting, scheduled for 20 and 21 January.
First virtual Cambridge Information & Intellectual Property Meeting is announced
1st Virtual Cambridge Information & Intellectual Property Meeting - 20-21 January 2021
'Maximising your IP Portfolio with 2020 Vision'
The organisers say:
We carried the 2020 theme over to this meeting: ‘Maximising your IP Portfolio with 2020 Vision’!!. In particular, we will be focusing on ensuring best practice in building and maintaining your IP strategy, maximising your IP portfolio for licensing and monetising, and using information published by others for 2020 vision.
We are delighted that many speakers originally booked for the 2020 meeting will deliver their talks for us in January via Zoom. So far, confirmed speakers are:

CIIPM topics are built around our focus of using information to inform business decision-making for those developing and commercialising technology-driven IP businesses and we hope you will join us to keep the conversations going. There will be Q&A and themed discussion sessions on each day.
The meeting will take place over two sessions, 14:00-16:30 GMT on 20 and 21 January.
We look forward to you joining us!
