AdamsonJones is one of three companies based at BioCity Nottingham to be nominated in the Medilink East Midlands 2013 Awards
The Awards recognise highly innovative companies operating within the healthcare, bioscience and medical technology sectors and are held annually by Medilink East Midlands, the region's life science industry association.
AdamsonJones, also a finalist in the Services category in the Nottingham Post Business Awards last month, is shortlisted for the Export Achievement Award. With specific expertise in the areas of biotechnology, medtech and pharmaceuticals and healthcare, AdamsonJones helps clients build effective patent portfolios covering the whole spectrum of deveopment in these fields.
Steve Jones, Director of Chemistry and Life Sciences at AdamsonJones said "Our approach to overseas markets has been to focus on the filing of European patent applications, which has resulted in an increase in export sales of 120% over a five-year period. Our greatest growth has come from the US and Canada, but we now have established relationships with direct clients in other countries such as Australia, Israel, South Africa and Germany. In addition, we have formed new relationships with associate patent attorneys in Singapore, Taiwan, India and Brazil."
Aurelia Bioscience and Healthcare Print and Packaging, fellow tenants at BioCity Nottingham, will also be hoping to win the Best Start-up award and Outstanding Achievement award respectively.
The Awards ceremony takes place on the evening following the ERDF supported Innovation Conference. This year’s theme, ‘Revolutionising Healthcare –What part will you play?’ has already attracted top speakers including Professor Hilary Thomas, Partner & Clinical Lead – Healthcare & Life Sciences Advisory & Global Centre of Excellence, KPMG; Sue Middleton, Vice-President Corporate and UK Government, GSK and Peter Homa CBE, Chief Executive, Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust.
