The UN Climate Change Conference (COP 26) is fast approaching and will bring politicians together to accelerate action towards achieving the goals of The Paris Agreement. However, it is the development of new green technologies (greentech) that is key to mitigating the effects of climate change. In recent years, there has been a dramatic growth of greentech with multi-national companies now leading its development. What were once substantially only oil companies are increasingly energy companies with green energy generation projects ranging from wind farms to hydropower. The rise of greentech is clearly demonstrated by the increasing number of patents filed in this field. In this webinar, we will look into the patenting trends in greentech, discuss examples of how technology developments have been made and patented, and discuss procedural aspects of greentech patenting.
Topics will include:
- An overview of what greentech is and patenting trends in greentech.
- Discuss examples of challenges faced with greentech development.
- Discuss examples of technology developments that have been made.
- Discuss approaches to claiming green technologies and where fundamental inventions may lie.
- Provide a summary of government incentives for patenting greentech in the main countries for patent filings.
The webinar will be suitable for:
- Anyone interested in the current greentech landscape and trends.
- Engineers interested in technologies for developing greentech.
- Patent attorneys involved with greentech patenting.
This webinar is available live and on-demand. If you cannot watch it live, sign up anyway and watch on-demand at a time convenient to you.
