The US market is arguably the most interesting target for most Life-Science companies. US patent law differs markedly from the rest of the world. Thus, a short-term myopic focus on the possibilities for obtaining patent protection in the US may imply inadvertent deselection of patent protection outside of the US. Speakers will present our recommendations concerning current best-practice for obtaining world-wide patent protection, while keeping control of the patent costs. Additional IP protection will also be touched upon.

Preben Rasmussen, Ph.D., European Patent Attorney
Preben has mainly worked within biotechnology and Life sciences, in particular within Molecular biology, patenting of enzymes, microorganisms and fermentation technology, and has further knowledge in the pharmaceutical area including patent term extensions such as SPCs. Preben has previously worked extensively with global IP strategies, building patent portfolios in several jurisdictions, including USA, Europe, China, Japan, Brazil and Australia. PhD obtained at the Laboratory of Microbiology, Technical University of Denmark. Master of Engineering, Technical University of Denmark.

Focus has been on building patent protection in the US, Europe, Japan, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Jakob has in particular experience within Life Science (working with pharmaceuticals, chemistry and biotechnology), as well as software related inventions. Ph.D. Solid State Chemistry, Kyoto University, Japan, M.Sc. Physics-Chemistry, Aarhus University, Denmark.
