This workshop will deliver essential knowledge and know-how from an industry expert, enabling you to gain a deeper understanding of IP that will support development of your research outcomes, prepare you for knowledge exchange activities and help with achieving lasting research impact.

Presented by Dr Nicholas Malden, Partner at D Young & Co, a leading top-tier European intellectual property firm and Bournemouth University’s preferred patent firm.

Nick Malden has more than 18 years’ experience in intellectual property specialising in patents, in particular those concerned with electronics, physics, materials, medical devices, and software. Prior to joining D Young & Co he was a research associate at Manchester University, though based at the Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY), in Hamburg, Germany, where his research included searches for exotic particle production in positron-proton and electron-proton collisions.

Today, he is primarily focussed on the preparation of new patent applications and guiding these through the examination process before patent offices around the world. His clients range from SMEs, to academic and research institutions, to global multinationals. A particular passion is sharing knowledge of IP in all its guises with individuals and smaller corporate entities, such that it can enhance and support their technological and commercial growth journeys.
