World IP Day Seminar - Innovation Improving Lives
World IP Day celebrates the role that intellectual property rights (patents, trade marks, designs, copyright) play in encouraging innovation and creativity. This year we’re exploring how innovation is making our lives healthier, safer and more comfortable, turning problems into progress. Come and hear award winning plastic surgeon and scientist Dr Swee Tan discuss his pioneering work to improve the lives of people with cancer and other serious health conditions.
Join the New Zealand Institute of Patent Attorneys (NZIPA), the Intellectual Property Society of Australia and New Zealand (IPSANZ) and the Intellectual Property Office of New Zealand (IPONZ) to take a look at how intellectual property is helping change the world for better.
