Session description
The University R & D Round Table is an annual event aimed at academics involved in EV R & D.  Industry representatives are especially invited this year for a special session starting at 1:00 pm on October 28 titles “Working with Universities“. Presenters from universities and government agencies will outline the various industry-academia programs through which funds can be made available to advance industry technology projects.  

A special presentation by Heather C. Devine Partner, Gowling Lafleur Henderson LLP of Hamilton, Ontario and Risto Pribisich Partner, Benesch Friedlander Coplan & Aronoff LLP of Cleveland, Ohio will instruct industry and academic players regarding the various intellectual property protections available in North America, with a practical focus on protecting research and development from innovation to commercialization. 

This presentation targets industry members currently conducting research and development and will serve to provide practical information to aid these businesses in commercializing and monetizing their patents, trade secrets, industrial designs, trademarks, and branding in the electric vehicle space.

After the refreshment break, academic representatives will discuss their current and proposed projects and explore areas of potential collaboration.
