Since 2002, BIO’s IP Counsels’ Committee Conference was a private event where BIO members learned about the hottest topics in the industry: newly-introduced legislation on Patent Reform, draft BIO comments to the Patent & Trademark Office, experiences from fellow member companies and universities, all under the guise of a “fun” 3-day Conference & Meeting.
Well, the results are in: the Conference has always been fun, because of the savvy planning of BIO staffers who incorporate local activites and events into the Conference. For the Phoenix, Arizona Conference March 25- 27, 2009, the Conference is open for non-BIO member company attendance.
Its difficult to find a better value or source of news than the most active member companies and universities in the United States, all who are interested in learning about the future of topics like global health, new innovative technologies, R&D funding, and bioethics.
