News: Business opportunities in a low carbon future


Leading intellectual property attorneys, Mathys & Squire LLP are hosting a free event in Rotherham this month on how businesses can develop and protect ideas for low carbon and energy saving technologies.

The event is aimed at all SMEs within South Yorkshire and is open to anyone from any sector and will include a series of presentations by experts in research,
technology, investment and intellectual property.

Break out sessions on the day will give businesses the opportunity to discuss ideas in confidence.

In attendance will be a specialist team of intellectual property attorneys dedicated to identifying and safeguarding new, clean energy and low carbon technology.

Also in attendance will be representatives from Isis Innovation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the University of Oxford, founded to exploit know-how arising out of research at one of the world's premier research institutions.

Representatives from Morgan Linley, the Yorkshire Association of Business Angels, EA Technology Ventures, Energy Innovation Centre and CO2Sense Yorkshire will also be on hand.

Ben Wyatt, of organisers Mathys & Squires, said: "The innovative technologies which will deliver the necessary carbon savings needed to reduce manufacturers' overheads and their environmental impact may already exist in a basic form.

"Our challenge is to uncover the processes in use, and work out how they can be made more efficient. It's possible that, in a Yorkshire factory, someone has implemented a money-saving solution on a small scale that could be commercialised and save money on a much larger scale.

"This event is about tapping into the manufacturing knowledge base here to see if anyone has an idea that could make them money – and help UK plc become more energy efficient."

The event takes place at the Advanced Manufacturing Park Technology Centre on April 23 at 1pm and places are strictly limited.

Please reserve your place by contacting Ben Wyatt at Mathys & Squire LLP by email or telephone 0161 870 5900.
