Recently the Riddet Institute hosted a quick-fire, lunch’n learn 30 minute HVN Science of Food webinar – the first of a series exploring IP trends and insights in the functional food space. Watch the webinar here.

The first webinar covered an introduction to IP – why it is and why it’s important to know; major patent trends for High-Value Nutrition’s priority research platforms: Infant Health, Digestive Health, Immune Health and Metabolic Health; a LIVE tour of PatSnap analytics highlighting ability to visualise the innovation playing field e.g. major competitors, target health outcomes, target foods/bioactives; and how the analytics can help guide your innovation plan and associated IP strategy.

The next webinar in 2020 will dive deeper into the patent landscapes for HVN health research platforms to allow more focused sessions for companies.

Peter Brown, Director of IP Synergy says he is “proud to continue his work with the HVN National Science Challenge.” Peter provides strategic (and easy to understand!) patent analytic reports to his clients including the HVN community across its four health research platforms. The valuable insights and knowledge help steer and align the science approach and commercialisation goals of R&D programmes.
