Intellectual Property masterclasses on offer

Two special events to help companies make the most of their intellectual property – and take steps to protect it – are to be staged in Shropshire this month.

Experts from the Intellectual Property Office will be on hand to give comprehensive advice at the free events organised by the Marches Growth Hub Shropshire.

The first session – on March 25 at University Centre Shrewsbury – is open to SMEs only and looks at what they know about intellectual property (IP) and what they are doing to protect it.

Emma Chapman, Marches Growth Hub Shropshire manager, said: “This workshop aims to give participants a good overview of IP – patents, trade marks, designs and copyright – and how to apply this information to their business.

“Having the right type of IP protection helps you to stop people stealing or copying the names of your products or brands, your inventions, the design or look of your products and the things you write, make or produce. This workshop is the perfect way to get up to speed with issues which could have a crucial impact on all small businesses in the county.”

Pippa Hall, director of innovation and chief economist at the Intellectual Property Office (IPO), said: “We know that IP is fundamental for maximising on business growth. It is exciting to think that just by identifying and managing the intellectual property they hold, businesses can create extra wealth by leveraging it to their commercial advantage.”

The event gets under way at 9.15am and runs until 12.30pm. A limited number of one-to-one sessions with an IPO adviser are also available from 1pm to 4pm.
