Cambridge Law Society IP and Technology Event

J A Kemp is pleased to be supporting this CLS event exploring the importance of intellectual property in the Cambridge technology "cluster."

Cambridge’s economic growth in recent decades has been driven by knowledge-intensive businesses ranging from University spin-outs to multinational companies setting up in and around the city. Much of the value in these businesses lies in their intellectual property (IP), including confidential trade secrets and patented inventions. In this event, Dr Jeremy Burroughes will discuss the importance of intellectual property in the Cambridge technology “cluster”.

This event is aimed at all members who are interested to know more about how intellectual property is used by knowledge-intensive companies and how it has helped shape Cambridge as it is today. In addition to IP specialists, members who do not deal with intellectual property issues on a day-to-day basis are particularly encouraged to attend.

There will be ample opportunity for networking over refreshments after the talk. Dr Jeremy Burroughes is one of the co-founders of CDT Limited which was the first technology spinout from Cambridge University. Following acquisition of CDT by global chemicals giant Sumitomo Chemical, CDT became Sumitomo Chemical’s European research and development centre and in his role as CTO Jeremy oversees a wide range of research activities which includes extensive collaborations with third party researchers in Cambridge and beyond. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 2012 for his research work.

There will be networking, drinks and nibbles after the event. Parking is available at the Cass Centre.

6.00pm-8.00pm on Thursday, 9 February 2023 (arrival from 5.30pm)
