Profiting from innovation
11th November 2014
Enscite helps manufacturing businesses to grow and thrive. Utilising the extensive network of partners, Enscite runs a series of supply chain workshops and seminars to help businesses improve their performance.
Profiting from Innovation will focus on how to identify, protect and profit from intellectual property. Aimed at SMEs in the supply chain, this free seminar will help business owners to understand the different types of intellectual property that may exist within their business, and help them to identify what is patentable as well as raise awareness of the tax incentives that exist to reward innovative businesses.
Nic Ferrar, Director of Physical Sciences & Engineering and Patent Attorney at AdamsonJones commented, “So many businesses are unaware of the intellectual property that exists in their business, and that they often have inventions, innovations or processes that could be patentable.
“We are building on our long-standing relationship with manufacturing and engineering businesses across the Midlands by teaming up with Baker Tilly and Enscite to put on this seminar. Derby is steeped in manufacturing and engineering expertise and we want to help those businesses to identify and protect their IP as well as advise on the importance of patent protection.”
Sheetal Sanghvi, Associate Tax Director at Baker Tilly, added, “There is a lot of opportunity for businesses to access tax incentives that are in place to reward innovation. Many businesses are not aware of these incentives and could stand to benefit.
“By bringing together our knowledge of how these tax incentives work with the expertise from AdamsonJones, we look forward to talking to the supply chain network that Enscite has developed to shed light on this sometimes, confusing topic and help them to unlock some value from their IP.”
The breakfast seminar, which is free to attend, will take place between 7.30am and 10.30am on 27th November at the Institute for Innovation in Sustainable Engineering in Derby.

Stay of proceedings at UK courts - Coloplast A/S v Salts Healthcare Limited
24th February 2020
Although a stay of national proceedings is the ‘default’ position in the UK, the stay was refused in this instance because of the combination of an absolute right of appeal, a minimum of two years to appeal and the potential of the ping pong effect before the EPO.
