Over this last year we have been talking to our clients about open innovation – what approach do they take – how "open" can it be – how are innovation and collaboration processed and structured – is "ownership" still an important factor - what issues are there in collaborating with partners from different sectors – what internal collaboration issues arise – what is the role of Legal in all this?
This is a half day conference dedicated to exploring the themes and practical issues emerging from these discussions, including an assessment of key legal issues, practical tips and risk management from our HSF team.
We are hosting a panel of industry speakers from in-house legal and innovation teams who will discuss their experiences of managing innovation and collaboration, including:
Victoria Thompson, Head of Innovation Legal – Barclays
Edwin Mayer, Head Counsel – Technology & Enterprise Services - Sky
Tim Heard, Co-founder & MD, The Circle of Young Intrapreneurs
We look forward to welcoming you to our offices on 2 July.
