What does future of patents hold in 5, 10, even 15 years? Join Jay and Leon as they discuss key trends in the patent arena. What are or should you be doing to prepare?

Even though Jay and Leon don't have a magical crystal ball, their years' of experience in patents provide a sound foundation to draw from for industry trend analysis - and yes, a little speculation. They will also draw from conversations held in 8 cities at the recently concluded Forum - The Future of IP and Technology Law Forum - where hundreds gathered to discuss these topics.

There will be time at the end of this hard-hitting, 30-min webinar for audience questions.

Dennemeyer & Associates Dubai and the University of Sharjah are looking forward to building a strong partnership for the improvement of Intellectual Property in United Arab Emirates.

During an informal meeting on May 9th, 2017, members of Dennemeyer & Associates Dubai met high representatives from the University of Sharjah, UAE, to discuss about innovation and IP. The UoS was founded in 1997 by the ruler of Sharjah, HH Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al-Qasimi, and is by now the largest University in the UAE. We were impressed by the achievements made and the University’s profound focus on R&D in all technical fields.

Dennemeyer is looking forward to partner with the University and work together to the improvement of Intellectual Property in the area. As a first initiative, Dennemeyer will hold a seminar on IP at the UoS, including notions about their “innovation box”, which shall raise the IP awareness on the campus and give guidelines to future inventors among the students and teachers. We foresee more great projects to come in the near future and are grateful for the opportunity of working together with the prestigious University of Sharjah.

 Attached you can see a picture from the meeting between the Dennemeyer & Associates and UoS representatives.

Space, the final frontier! Well, not anymore, because thanks to a group of 6 9th grade students from Brasov, Romania, we will be able to survive in space. Not very soon, but give them some time and they will make it possible.

This year’s NASA Ames Space Settlement Contest for space colonization has seen a great deal of incredible projects. 6000 kids ranging from 7th to 12th grade have battled for a place on the prestigious NASA podium, but only a few made it.

Heosphoros, the Romanian team, has placed on the 1st place for kids in the 9th grade, winning with their space station located in the Lagrangian point L4. The 6 9 graders are all from Andrei Saguna National College, and are coordinated by their Physics teacher, Mrs. Carmen Tanasescu. The kids are: Alexandra Băitanu, Diana Maria Chichernea, Elena Isaia, Iulia Kis, Alexandru Matei Rădulescu and Mihai Alexandru Bîscă.

But it’s a long way from Romania to the United States, where the children are supposed to give a presentation to the world most prestigious minds, meet Nobel prize winners and accept their award. That is why Dennemeyer has decided to support their project and sponsor their trip and presentation to St Louis, Missouri.
