Managing Intellectual Property Magazine Launches Green IP Award

October 11th, 2008 by Eric Lane Leave a reply »

Managing Intellectual Property Magazine (Managing IP) is launching the Green IP Award “[t]o recognize important inventions in the field of clean technology” and acknowledge “the key role played by patents in innovation.” 

Any published patent application or issued patent that relates to combating climate change can be submitted for consideration.  The patent applications must be published by December 31, 2008 to be considered. 

The award will be presented to the inventor and patent attorney responsible for the winning submission, and the winning technology will be profiled in the magazine. 

I will have the honor and privilege of serving on a panel of judges that has been selected by the editor of Managing IP to determine the winner.

The closing date for submissions is January 31, 2009.  The link for more information on the contest is here. 

The launch follows an excellent article Managing IP did on the role of intellectual property in the current clean tech boom.  The comprehensive and thoughtful piece by James Nurton was the cover story of the magazine’s September issue.
