The three-part training series is designed for Engineering faculty, post docs, and students. This latest IP Training Series is titled: "IP strategies and business strategies: what comes first?"

The College of Engineering Entrepreneurism initiative is in its second year. Previous attendance at earlier workshops is not required.

Aaron Levine and Matt Todd, partners and co-chairs of the New Ventures & Corporate Transactions Group in locally-based law firm Novak Druce Connolly Bove + Quigg LLC, will present each workshop. Novak et al is a national IP practice with offices in Houston, Washington, DC, San Francisco, Silicon Valley, Los Angeles, Boston, West Palm Beach and Wilmington. Their clients span a diverse group of industries and technologies from electronic commerce and telecommunications to biotech and pharmaceuticals.

The first session will be presented on March 21, with subsequent sessions set for March 28 and April 4. Attendees are required to RSVP at the following link: http://www.egr.uh.edu/advancement/external_relations/ip-2014-registration.
