This Session features two distinctive parts. The first features a presentation from industry speaker Mr Mark Pullen from Watermark, who will endeavour to demystify the Intellectual Property (IP) process and provide a basic understanding IP, the types of protection, what novel concepts/ideas/technologies might be protectable and how to go about the protection process.
The second part of the Session will provide finalists of the ECU Enterprise Tuesday Watermark Competition the chance to undertake a ‘pitch’ of less than five minutes each to the Competition Panel, with the winner receiving a prize of $2,000!
After serving as a Marine Engineer in the Royal Navy, Mark moved into IP initially as a patent examiner in the UK Patent Office, South Wales. His fields of interest covered a broad spectrum of mechanical and electrical technologies, taking in subjects as diverse as vehicle engine management systems and borehole telemetry through to coin discrimination and product packaging systems.
In July 2000, Mark moved to Western Australia and qualified as a patent and trade mark attorney with Watermark. He’s inspired by the variety of innovative people and businesses he’s able to engage with in his role.
