IP Forum wrap up
27 Jun 2014
We recently hosted the annual IP Forum with the theme Agri-innovation: the convergence of research, IP and commercialisation in Australian agriculture.
We were quite fortunate to have outstanding speakers in Dr Richard Dickmann from Bayer Cropscience, Dr Steve Thomas from the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), and our very own Chief of Plant Breeders Rights, Doug Waterhouse.
Richard provided us with insights into Bayer's local R&D activity and their commercialisation success. Steve spoke of the GRDC's focus on delivering benefits to growers from R&D activities. And Doug discussed the role IP rights play in securing knowledge created from agricultural research and development. The enthusiastic Q&A session afterwards made this one of our best forums to date.
Missed the Forum? We have split the forum into 4 videos on our YouTube Channel.
Full transcripts are also available for each video.
