News: Business events at the AMP Technology Centre


The AMP Technology Centre on the Advanced Manufacturing Park in Rotherham is hosting an intellectual property event this month looking at making innovation work and making innovation pay.

In the free two hour seminar, Matt Symonds, director of TBAT Innovation and Paul Foot, a partner at patent attorneys Withers & Rogers will show companies how to make the most of the upfront and often costly investment in research and development.

The seminar focuses on practical strategies for managing the innovation process, assessing the results and using intellectual property (IP) as a way of extracting value.

The concept of the innovation process will be outlined including: what it looks like, how to implement and measure it and what benefits it can deliver to an organisation.

Among the exploitation models explored will be the classical fortress and licensing models, the "monopoly-in-a-box" and a number of hybrid solutions borne out of the others.

The event takes place on November 18.

The Manufacturing Advisory Service for Yorkshire & Humber (MAS) has organised an event at the centre focused on Manufacturing for Low Carbon Buildings.

This free half day event on November 23 is aimed at manufacturers of products used in the building and construction supply chain and aims to provide simple ideas about how to capitalise on the Low Carbon Building agenda and keep ahead of competitors.

The event features networking opportunities and seminars from companies and organisations including Construction Sector Network Y&H, University of Leeds Nanofactory, Eco3 Design and the Keepmoat Group.

The AMP Technology Centre is also hosting an investment forum with the Yorkshire Association of Business Angels (YABA) on November 23.

Sponsored by Sheffield's Nabarro LLP, the invitation-only event will see up to ten of the regions entrepreneurs introduce their business proposals to an audience of business angel investor members, associate members and intermediaries from the professional community.
