Appetising address at LES SA AGM

Those with an interest in the progress of South Africa's initiative to commercialise IP from publicly funded institutions are in for a treat at the AGM of the South African Chapter of the Licensing Executives Society (LES SA) next Thursday 2 February.

LES SA has invited the head of  the (National Intellectual Property Management Office) NIPMO, Dr Jonathan Youngleson, to deliver their keynote address at the AGM.

His address is expected to cover issues such as the 'Status of the Implementation of the IPR Act, the Primary Nightmares with the Implementation of the IPR Act as Experienced by NIPMO and/or Others, the IPR Act’s Influence on Contract Research, etc.' according to the invite.

Afro Leo had a chance to catch up with LES SA president Theo Doubell (Bouwers) about the meeting invite which is only addressed to members but Theo says everyone is welcome - just make sure to RSVP here to Kevin Dam (DM Kisch) for catering. Cocktails and drinks follow the AGM and, who knows, you just may join the Society which is all about commercialising IP.

Finer details then:

Thursday February 2
AECI offices - AECI place 22/23, The Woodlands, Woodlands Drive, Woodmead
4pm for the Keynote address

See you there!
