About this Webinar
Smart & Biggar and Invest Ottawa present an IP masterclass for Climate Tech Innovators.
With global warming pushing the world to transition to a decarbonized economy, Canadian innovators developing climate technology need to consider how to integrate and leverage intellectual property (IP) as a key tool for growth and pillar in their strategic plan to succeed in this increasingly competitive global market.
Join us online for this Smart & Biggar IP Masterclass to learn from partner Lei Liu as he discusses IP considerations for innovators in climate tech to better protect and leverage their IP as they develop sustainable and renewable technologies to battle climate change and global warming. In particular, the presentation will explore:
