Hi all,

. . .

Some of you may be interested in LESI's Global Technology Impact Forum
(GTIF) in January.  This event brings together leading organizations who
"share a common goal of advancing mankind through the use of IP licensing
and technology transfer".

GTIF's theme for 2014 is "A Practical Approach for Technology Transfer:
Corporate, Research, and NGO Collaboration for Double Bottom Line Results."
 Expected speakers include:

WIPO DG Francis Gurry
WTO IP Division Director Antony Taubman
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit Chief Judge Randall R. Rader
AUTM President Sean Flanigan
Richard Wilder, Associate General Counsel, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation
Jaqueline Lemos, Legal Executive Manager, Brazilian National Development
Bank (BNDES)
Chan Park, General Counsel, Medicines Patent Pool

More information is available in the attached flyer, or at:


At last year's GTIF, Patents for Humanity received the award for Best
National IP & Tech Transfer Policy 2013.
