On March 23, Barry R. Lewin and Silvia Salvadori presented at the seminar on International Patenting at the University of Chile, the largest university in Chile. They delivered presentations on software patenting; considerations for inventors in preparing global patent applications; considerations for biotechnology, including chemistry and medical devices; and global patent portfolio management. More than 100 people attended the presentations, including faculty, Government officials, Chilean patent attorneys, and administrative people from the University including the technology transfer office and the IP office.
“Universities are often at the leading edge of innovation, and the University of Chile is no exception,” said Mr. Lewin. “Chile is a very forward-looking country, filled with highly educated innovators. We look forward to continuing to work with and help the University’s science and medicine faculty better understand how to protect their innovations. This is especially important in light of recent changes in patentability in the U.S. and elsewhere.”
