About Us :  This site is based on the comprehensive Handbook and Executive Guide that provide substantive discussions and analysis of the opportunities awaiting anyone in the field who wants to put intellectual property to work. The printed version includes 153 chapters on a full range of IP topics and over 50 case studies, composed by over 200 authors from North, South, East, and West, whereas this online resource contains much more than the Handbook. Among others, users like you are expanding the content with comments, discussions and document uploads.
If you are new to this site, we invite you to use the site guides available for policymakers, senior administrators, technology transfer managers, or scientists. The site guide distills the key points of each IP topic covered by the Handbook into simple language and places it in the context of evolving best practices specific to your professional role within the overall picture of IP management.
The Handbook with the companion Executive Guide, and this web site, have been developed by many dedicated individuals with the intent of making a resource available to the global community for putting intellectual property to work. The entire effort was overseen by an international Editorial Board.
We hope these resources uniquely contribute to efforts in global health and food security and the use of the Handbook and Executive Guide are endorsed by many distinguished individuals from our Board of Patrons.

About Us :  The IPI is responsible for examining, granting and administering industrial property rights (patents, trade marks and designs). It works together with governmental agencies, trade associations and businesses to enforce Swiss indications of source within Switzerland and internationally. The IPI also supervises the collective rights management organisations for copyright and provides information on intellectual property rights to individuals and companies in a variety of ways.  Thus the IPI is the federal government's central point of contact for all questions concerning patents, trade marks, geographical designations of origin, design protection and copyright. Its mandate is set out in the  Statute of the IPI (in German).  It is responsible for drafting legislation and advising the Federal Council and other federal authorities on matters concerning intellectual property. The IPI also represents the interests of Switzerland at international level. Its legal mandate is regulated in more detail on an ongoing basis by the political instances and in particular the head of the Federal Department of Justice and Police.  The IPI is its own legal entity and is independent from the federal government budget.

Our mission:  We are the Swiss Confederation's centre of competence for patent, design and trade mark protection, indications of source and copyright. We help innovators and creators to create value out of their ideas, thus promoting innovation, competitiveness, cultural diversity and social progress.

        Roles of site: (g2) Technology news, (f2) Publishers, (b3) International conferences     

About Us :  IAM is universally acknowledged as the world's leading IP business media platform. It was launched as a magazine in July 2003 to address the need for organisations to maximise the value of their intellectual property and other intangibles, and to examine the strategies they can put in place to do this. IAM now produces a wide range of publications, as well as a weekly email and daily blog.
IAM is unique because it treats intellectual property as a business asset and tool, rather than simply as a legal right. With this unequalled appeal to the boardroom, IAM has established itself as the only IP publication that many senior corporate executives read regularly.
The insight and intelligence IAM provides is topical, timely and continually thought provoking for its subscription-based readership. Editorial quality and integrity are paramount. The quality of the editorial is guaranteed by an in-house team, based in London, Hong Kong and Washington DC, with long-established journalistic track records in the specialist IP and business press, including on titles such as the Wall Street Journal and the Financial Times. A number of articles are also commissioned from leading figures in the IP business world.
IAM also publishes a weekly email which has over 27,000 subscribers. It comprises a summary of popular content and jurisdiction-based international reports from leading law firms. The website hosts a fully searchable archive of all articles and supplements published.
IPBC is widely acknowledged as the world's pre-eminent IP business event and attracts high-level delegates from industry, finance and investment, the law, academia and government, as well as IP intermediaries and aggregators. ...

About:  Our Mission:  General Introduction:  Understanding nature's mute but elegant language of living cells is the quest of modern molecular biology. From an alphabet of only four letters representing the chemical subunits of DNA emerges a syntax of life processes whose most complex expression is man. The unraveling and use of this "alphabet" to form new "words and phrases" is a central focus of the field of molecular biology. The staggering volume of molecular data and its cryptic and subtle patterns have led to an absolute requirement for computerized databases and analysis tools. The challenge is in finding new approaches to deal with the volume and complexity of data and in providing researchers with better access to analysis and computing tools to advance understanding of our genetic legacy and its role in health and disease.
Creating NCBI:  The late Senator Claude Pepper recognized the importance of computerized information processing methods for the conduct of biomedical research and sponsored legislation that established the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) on November 4, 1988, as a division of the National Library of Medicine (NLM) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). NLM was chosen for its experience in creating and maintaining biomedical databases, and because as part of NIH, it could establish an intramural research program in computational molecular biology. The collective research components of NIH make up the largest biomedical research facility in the world.

History:  Fenwick & West was founded in 1972 in the heart of Silicon Valley—before "Silicon Valley" existed—by four visionary lawyers who left a top-tier New York law firm to pursue their shared belief that technology would revolutionize the business world and to pioneer the legal work for those technological innovations. In order to be most effective, they decided they needed to move to a location close to primary research and technology development. These four attorneys opened their first office in downtown Palo Alto, and Fenwick became one of the first technology law firms in the world.

[Note (TN, May 14, 2022):  From Wikipedia:  Hitachi, Ltd. is a Japanese multinational conglomerate corporation headquartered in Chiyoda, Tokyo, Japan. It is the parent company of the Hitachi Group (Hitachi Gurūpu) and had formed part of the Nissan zaibatsu and later DKB Group and Fuyo Group of companies before DKB and Fuji Bank (the core Fuyo Group company) merged into the Mizuho Financial Group. As of 2020, Hitachi conducts business ranging from IT, including AI, the Internet of Things, and big data, to infrastructure.

(TN) It is rather hard for me to write introduction to this big manufacturing company by taking excerpts from their website.   The videos (in English) of "The Pioneers - Part 1,2,3 - Hitachi" show the history of Hitachi since its start in 1910 and is very impressive for me as the emergence story of manufacturing in Japan.  ]

About Us : About Robert Yaman :  Who am I?  Robert Yaman: I'm an animal advocate, effective altruist, scientist, and software engineer passionate about cellular agriculture.  Having spent much of my life advocating for farmed animals, learning about cell-based meat for the first time felt like finding cheat codes for an incredibly high-stakes video game. Instead of spending the next decade nudging public opinion little by little, we could skip right to the end: a world where animals are no longer exploited for agriculture because they're no longer the most effective mode of production.  Nothing else seemed as important for me to work on, so last year I left my software engineering job at YouTube to work on cell-based meat. Since then, I have been looking for the most effective ways I can use my skills to move the industry forward.

[Note (TN, May 17, 2022):  Robert Yaman raised his start-up company "Missipn Barns" in 2018.
About Us : Top page:   Our Mission :  We are making meat that's better for you and the world.   A Better Way to Make Meat:  We developed a scalable way to make real meat - without the animal:  Our process begins by isolating cells from an animal and placing them in a warm cultivator which mimics the animal's body. The cells grow naturally as they do in a cow, chicken, or pig as we feed them nutrients including vitamins, sugars, and proteins. After the cells fatten the cultivation process is complete. We then harvest the meat, throw it on a pan, and enjoy.   Fat = Flavor :  We started by making animal fat, which drives the flavor and mouthfeel of meat.    Our products:  Misson Fat + Plant protein.  Our first products leverage the deliciousness of Mission Fat™ and the benefits of plant-protein to usher in a whole new level of meaty enjoyment.
Press Release: Sanfrancisco, CA, Apr. 7, 2021:  Silicon Valley-based cellular agriculture company Mission Barns today announced a $24M Series A to scale up its cultivated fat technology and build a pilot manufacturing plant in the Bay Area.    Mission Barns is focused on cultivating animal fat—without the animal. Its technology platform enables starting from a handful of pork, poultry, or beef cells and feeding them a plant-based feedstock inside a cultivator. Over a short period of time, the novel process creates real, pure animal fat that delivers the mouthfeel and flavor of meat without raising and slaughtering live animals, and uses a fraction of the carbon emissions, water, and land required by conventional animal agriculture. ]
