Australian Engineering Week: Invention to Investment Seminar success

On Wednesday 7th August, Davies Collison Cave, together with Engineers Australia, hosted the “Invention to Investment’ seminar as part of  Australia Engineering week (AEW). The Event was one of the highlights of AEW in Victoria, attracting over 130 engineers from all around Victoria.

The seminar provided an opportunity to learn how an Intellectual Property (IP) Protection Strategy can help with preparing for investors and gave an understanding of what investors look for in regards to IP Protection and the best approach to obtaining a grant.

Hayden Barke, Senior Associate with the Engineering group at Davies Collison Cave, discussed the IP protection considerations and strategies, and some of the benefits and pitfalls related to the various IP protection options. Bob Beaumont, Consultant at Commercialisation Australia, provided an insight into how to submit a strong application for Government grants and Ken Johnsen, CEO of Perth based Advanced Braking Technology Ltd (ABT), shared his insight into how ABT’s IP protection strategy has been successfully implemented and their key to obtaining a grant for technology development.

Thanks to our speakers, to Engineers Australia and its members for another great Engineering Week.  Davies Collison Cave is proud to be a sponsor of the 2013 Australian Engineering Week and looks forward to AEW 2014.
