Technology Transfer and Business Development at IBMC: How to make an impact in society

Professor Claudio Sunkel is pleased to invite you to a half-day event at IBMC on June 12th, which will provide an introduction to the increasingly important subject of intellectual property (IP), and an overview of how to work with it in a modern research institute. This event will also provide an opportunity to speak with experts from the field of IP and commercialisation, and get answers to any questions you may have on this subject.

2Bio Limited is a UK company that works with clients such as universities, hospitals and research institutes to identify, evaluate and protect their IP portfolios, and to start the process of turning IP into commercial value. 2Bio has been in business since 2007 and had established an international clientele, including major clients in Portugal.
