Speaking Engagements (India) GenericsWeb Patent Academies 6 and 8 Oct 08

I’m delighted to let you know that I will be co-presenting at the upcoming GenericsWeb Patent Academies in Hyderabad and Mumbai with Leighton Howard.

These two single-day events will be held on 6 and 8 October.

The GenericsWeb Academies are always fantastic and I am looking forward to entertaining and thought provking discussions on patent strategy with the attendees.

Please get in touch with Jesse Tale at GenericsWeb if you’d like to come along. And please do pass this on to others who you think may be interested.

Here’s a sneak preview of the details:

GenericsWeb is excited to announce that the Generic Pharmaceutical Patent Academy is travelling to India for two very special events:

  • 6th of October ’08 at the Taj Krishna, Hyderabad
  • 8th of October ’08 at the Leela Kempinski, Mumbai

This is an exciting opportunity for you and your colleagues to improve your understanding and effectiveness in our rapidly evolving industry. GenericsWeb Patent Academies are highly respected and renowned events, receiving feedback including:

"This course will make you love patent issues"

"Great information on all fronts regarding the generic patent environment"

"Very good, very recommendable"

The Indian Patent Academy is a specially adapted one-day version of the full patent academy and will provide a global overview of patent protection in
the generic pharmaceutical industry. The course will be delivered by industry experts Duncan Bucknell from Global IP Strategies and Leighton Howard CEO of GenericsWeb.

Why you should attend:
The ability for generic drug development personnel to understand and respond to patents is of increasing importance in today’s markets. At no time in the past has the influence of patents been more significant on our industry, creating confusion and uncertainty with frightening regularity.

GenericsWeb recognises the fundamental need for personnel performing different functions to understand how pharmaceutical patenting affects the
generic development process and to integrate it into the development process by devising appropriate strategies.
